Portfolio Camp 2019 (Ages 16-18)

View Map

You may have thought about the future of your education, but what about
the future of your creativity?

Portfolio Camp enables you to:

  • Understand the basics of organizing and presenting your work
  • Begin translating your art and/or design skills to KCAD’s creative community
  • Explore the KCAD campus and its resources
  • Emerge prepared for the application process


Over the course of two weeks, you’ll become completely immersed in an artistic exploration that will change the way you think about your creative potential. You’ll experiment with still life, figure or landscape drawing, design drawing, printmaking, 3D printing, and create 2-4 finished portfolio pieces. You’ll meet one-on-one with KCAD Admissions staff to review your current work and set goals for your future. You’ll bond with your fellow aspiring creatives through group activities, and connect with current KCAD undergraduate students, many of whom are Portfolio Camp alumni. Portfolio Camp tuition ($1195) includes over 70 hours of studio time guided by KCAD faculty and Continuing Studies instructors, 1-2 personalized portfolio review session, field trip admission to Frederick Meijer Gardens & Sculpture Park, and two studio nights each week, including a light dinner.

Students are responsible for bringing their own art supplies and for purchasing their own lunch daily, along with most dinners. They’re also highly encouraged to bring previously created works of art (or photos and documentation of such) to portfolio review sessions.


Housing (optional), based on double occupancy, is available nearby for an additional $1195. Housing cost includes room, linens, transportation, supervision. Coin operated laundry facilities are available nearby.

As a college within Ferris State University, Kendall College of Art and Design prepares students for leadership in the visual arts, design, art history, and art education; provides innovative, collaborative education that fosters intellectual growth and individual creativity; and promotes the ethical and civic responsibilities of artists and designers, locally and globally. KCAD’s expert faculty and supportive atmosphere guide students to success in 17 specialized undergraduate programs
