Portfolio and Tutorials

At Terife Educational Services we have designed a flexible program of classes to prepare the portfolio that some universities require as a requirement for admission to careers such as Visual Arts, Design, and Architecture.

In preparing this portfolio, the student will enhance his innate aesthetic skills and sensibilities to execute and appreciate art and design.

In parallel, we offer a series of computer program courses to improve the skills of our students in different areas. These tutorials are focused on academic and professional fields as well as personal areas.

The student will learn various fine arts techniques in these classes, which will include: introduction to life drawing, familiarization with different materials and techniques such as graphite, pastels, watercolor, engraving, analog collage and three-dimensional items, among others. It also includes notions of art history, artistic movements and their most iconic representatives.

Elena Gil, architect and fine arts artist (elena-gil.com) is in charge of these classes.

This course is aimed at preparing a quality portfolio by enhancing the student’s skills. It begins with an introduction to the basic principles of visual communication, then progresses with exercises in typography, layout, use of color, graphic identity and exploration in packaging design.
