Wilma Sanchez


As both a teacher and a former student, I understand firsthand the immense pressure that today’s high school students face when navigating the college application process. I recall the hardships I experienced when applying to Parsons School of Design, where I was ultimately awarded a full scholarship.

Now, as a mentor to current students, my goal is to share my knowledge and experience, and to instill in them a love and appreciation for the arts.

I believe that with the right guidance and support, every student has the potential to succeed and thrive in the college application process.

crafting the college art portfolio

My proven 3-step strategy for high school students will help you create a well-rounded art portfolio that emphasizes your strengths, and impresses even the most ardent college admissions officers. My strategy includes steps on how to create a stellar portfolio in less time.  Let’s work together to make your college art application stand out.


Assess and Enhance

The first step in my plan involves evaluating the student’s existing art portfolio and identifying areas for improvement. This includes assessing the quality and consistency of their work, identifying their strengths and weaknesses, and helping them refine their artistic voice and style.


Research and Strategize

The second step involves researching colleges and universities that offer strong art programs and determine  the best fit for the student’s interests and skills.  A strategic plan is developed for the application process: setting deadlines, listing required materials, and deciding on the most effective way to present the student’s portfolio.


Refine and Submit

The third and final step involves working with the student to refine their portfolio and application materials, ensuring that everything is polished, professional, and showcases their unique talents and perspective. Options include preparing the student for interviews, and providing ongoing support and guidance throughout the  process.

College Scholarships

As a coach, one of the greatest joys is seeing my students succeed. Many of the students I have worked with have been granted scholarships to some of the most prestigious art schools in the country.
