Art & Design Portfolio Preparation Course

LONDON ART PORTFOLIO is located in Central London, in a listed building right by Tower Bridge.

London Art Portfolio is run by Julia Dennis, a practicing artist who exhibits regularly nationally and internationally. She offers BESPOKE art and design portfolio preparation courses and personal support in fine art, painting, sculpture, fashion and textile design, fashion photography, animation and illustration with a team of specialist tutors in all areas of art, design and architecture.

In 2008, Julia set up London Art Portfolio in Wapping, London. Within a few years LAP transferred to a floor of studios in a historic listed building next to Tower Bridge, in the heart of London. Due to an ever-increasing interest in the preparation of art, design and architecture portfolios from students in the UK, Europe and across the globe, London Art Portfolio has recently become a limited company. Many of our students return to study at London Art Portfolio throughout their studies and professional careers.

London Art Portfolio delivers 1, 4, 6, 12,18 and 24 week course programmes for portfolio preparation and development. In addition we run focused fun portfolio development courses for students 18 and under. This is a great way to prepare early for your future goals and aspirations and be ahead of everyone else. The summer course programme is proving a great success.

We also have a unique group size of 12 students maximum per group/studio. This enables all students to reach their full potential and be successful. It also helps to give that extra support you may be searching for if you are also an International student and English may not be your first language. All of our staff on our courses are experienced tutors and can give you the valuable support you are looking for.
