There is no greater joy than handing the baton of art and design to the next generation of talented young people. Students develop portfolios in private lesson settings in order to prepare for their Magnet art auditions and college acceptances. It is advised to begin portfolio/audition training at least one year in advance, although this is a flexible time window. Students of Tracy Ellyn have been accepted into Parsons, Pratt, FIT, RISD, Art Institute of Chicago, Cooper Union, Carnegie Mellon, London College of Fashion, Royal College of Art (London), Central St. Martins (London), Parsons Paris, and many others. Magnet acceptances have included New World School of the Arts, DASH, Coral Reef and other art Magnets in Miami.
