Portfolio’s unique strength is
working with clients and teachers to develop new innovative arts
programs that focus on learning specific skill sets. Examples include:

Learning about art & science, students approach art
as a “micro
system,” looking at art under a microscope, exploring the
makeup of colors,
For Innovation Concept Academy with support from Judge Jimmie

a character -building component using the visual arts.
