Community Classes The Community Education Program at VCUQatar offers a wide range of art, craft and design courses during the fall, spring and late spring. Once again, more than a thousand community members participated in the program this past year. In addition, VCUQatar partnered with IAID, Academy for Dance Music and Art, to engage a new audience and offer art and design classes at a new venue within the IAID’s premises.
Portfolio Development VCUQatar offered five portfolio development courses during Fall 2014 to about 80 high school students. Classes were taught by VCUQatar faculty and focused on skill development and the creative process. The portfolio development classes are an important step towards art and design college admission. They provide high school students with the opportunity to strengthen their portfolios and further develop basic art and design skills.
