2017 Portfolio Surgery Educators-01

Portfolio Surgery at the 2016 event in full swing

Here’s what past Portfolio Surgery participants have to say…

An educator’s perspective on Portfolio Surgery…

  • “I thought Portfolio Surgery was excellent. The challenge was ‘how can I help? How can I in every instance help the person to move forwards’. I talked to one girl who had done mostly face painting, which I advised her to move on from and concentrate on sculpture which she had done one piece of, so we looked at what she had done physiologically and how she could develop that. All the folios were hugely different. When the participants have that look in their eye where a little light bulb has gone on above their heads, you know what that moment is and you think ‘Aha, I have helped you today!’ It’s a brilliant thing and I came away thinking, well that was great!”
