The following workshop is offered to all High Schools in Suffolk County through the Eastern Suffolk BOCES. I am currently working on offering it through the Nassau County BOCES as well.

Ins & Outs of Portfolios for College Admissions

Kyle Blumenthal’s ‘Art Portfolio Prep for College Admissions’ workshop provides promising high school art students with tools needed to help them gain traction to pull ahead in the competitive college admission process. Students will receive individualized instruction on producing and presenting a properly formatted admission portfolio that reflects both personal style and artistic skill. They will also learn how to knowledgeably write and speak about their own work, as well as participate in mock college interviews.

About the Instructor:
Blumenthal is an experienced art education specialist. She holds a BFA in Painting and Art Education from Pratt Institute and a MA and MFA in Painting from C.W. Post College. She has also served as part of the Art/Art History faculty at Empire State College and was recognized for her artistic achievements in 2007, when New York Foundation for the Arts named her a Mark Fellow. Currently, she teaches painting and leads a portfolio program (which she created) at the Nassau County Museum of Art in Roslyn, New York.


➢ One-day intensive pre-college portfolio preparation program or a four-day workshop taught at your High School, this includes but is not limited to:

• Portfolio critiques (group and individual) workshop

• Mock college interviews

• Confidence building exercises

• Instruction on essay writing and formatting art descriptions.

• Portfolio formatting for effective portfolio presentation.

• Individualized planning

The following letter is from one of my Pre-College Age Portfolio-Prep graduates.

Goooood Afternoon Kyle!

I'm loving Parsons and I haven't even been here a week. I also recently received another scholarship, making that a total of $10,000 in scholarship per semester here at Parsons. Thank you. SO much! Nothing could have been accomplished without your help, guidance, and instruction. You're the greatest.

Also, I would be honored if you used my work in the online student gallery. Thanks!!!!!!

How are you? How's the museum's Sandy recovery?
