The Milwaukee Portfolio School picks up where college leaves off and eases the frustration of creative directors stuck with graduates who lack the specific skills needed to work in advertising. Here, students learn to concept like agency pros, discover what job-winning portfolios look like and spend time with award-winning creatives. All of this and more in a six-week program that costs about half as much as just one college course hour.

Sessions are held fall, winter and summer with classes every Monday and Wednesday between 6 and 8pm at C2 Graphics Productivity Solutions in Milwaukee’s Fifth Ward.
