Erik Gullard, the Senior Assistant Director of Admissions at Lesley University and BFA specialist talked about Lesley’s robust BFA offerings and portfolio standards with the Art Portfolio class. In addition, he facilitated a hands-on activity, asking students to place sample art portfolio entries into a logical and thoughtful sequence.
After Art Portfolio concluded, Erik spoke to a number of inquiring artists about their specific portfolios and current projects. To learn more about what Lesley has to offer click here.

Aleksa Wilk, 2017 NRHS Graduate visited the AR-8 classroom this past Tuesday. I put her on the spot to share her beautiful landscape and architectural paintings during D block Foundations of Art. Many students in Foundations of Art may not be able to foresee their potential so seeing a person who was once in their shoes is a wonderful opportunity.
Since graduating, Aleksa has continued to blossom as an artist as she has completed many commission pieces.
Check out her artwork here.
All of my students recently created and decided upon their artist’s signature- the final marks that will be placed on any and all art they create this year.
Some meticulous or messy, others spontaneous or calculated- all of which invite you into the artist’s world. Check out these marks in the Main Street exhibition spaces.
The list is out! Grab a fresh sketchbook (available in AR-8) and let’s get sketching! Prompt responses can be shared out via the hashtags under the prompts and an Inktober drawing board will be on display outside of Mr. Dexter’s room for the month of October. We’ll have a tired hand sketching party on Halloween during powerblock.
