Private Lessons In Edinburgh

If you are working preparing a portfolio for application to art college alone then the whole process can seem quite daunting. Who do you ask for impartial advice about your work? Does that person have a good insight into what the art colleges are looking for in an applicant? Even if you are at school or on a portfolio preparation course then it can sometimes still be quite difficult.

Our private art lessons are goal orientated – that of getting a place at art college.


>> WHAT DO WE DO? Together, we establish a focused, personal development plan including a digital portfolio service.

>> HOW DO WE DO IT? After an initial 2 hour meeting, we meet every 2 weeks for one hour. In this hour session we plan and set tasks and review work that has been done. These regular meetings keep you on track to meet your goal of getting into your dream college. We also have a Facebook Group where students can post, get feedback between sessions and meet others being mentored by Portfolio Oomph.

>> HOW MUCH DOES IT COST? We ask for a commitment of 6 months starting in September (or 3 month fast-track if starting later than September) for our mentoring, to enable the best possible chance of your success. Please contact us for prices and payment options.

>> WHERE DOES IT HAPPEN? All coaching meetings will take place at the Portfolio Oomph studio. This is to allow for access to materials, books and other resources. If travelling from Edinburgh by bus please take the Lothian buses route 29 (to Gorebridge NOT Gilmerton), Borders buses route X95 . There is now a rail link which is a short 20 minute train trip on the Borders Railway Tweedbank line. (Full address is 16 Park Road, Newtongrange, Midlothian. EH22 4JW). Mentoring is also offered by Skype.

>> HOW DO I ARRANGE AN APPOINTMENT? You can call us on 07815 810797, email us through our contact page. Or please click the book appointment button below to book online (there is also the opportunity to write a message with your booking)

Portfolio Oomph does not offer refunds on any of its products or services. Portfolio Oomph offers you the best possible chance of creating a portfolio that will secure you a place at art college. However we cannot guarantee that by using our learning materials/mentoring services that you will be accepted to art college. The website, its content and all mentoring services are a support to aid your application, not a passport to a place.
