Portfolio Preparation Courses are taught by West California Academy of Art and Design (WCAAD) faculty who consider the college’s admissions and requirements when structuring assignments. Providing you with competent skills level for college, they will guide you into the right path and plan for each individual’s needs.
Whether you require the full range of mentoring services or just one or two, your experience can be tailored to your needs.
As the Honorary President of WCAAD, Mr. Wang Shouzhi gives reputable lectures on Art Education at the Academy every year.
Mr. Wang Shouzhi is a world famous design theorist. Currently he is the tenure professor of Art Center College of Design and visiting professor of Central Academy of Fine Arts, China. Many of his publications on design have become textbooks and references in various China art and design colleges and universities.
“I have been teaching at U.S. art and design universities for over 20 years.” Mr. Wang says, “Many top schools actually conduct a knock-out procedure starting from the freshman year: students who are weak in creativity will have to drop out of the school. I’m glad to see that West California Academy of Art and Design always puts emphasis on student’s creativity.”
