Portfolio Program

Art portfolios are required as the main factor in the admissions process for art colleges and art majors in universities. Ranging from around 12-20 pieces, art portfolios are meant to demonstrate an applicant’s observational skills and creative poitential in any given major.

Art portfolios may be utilized as supplements for non-art major universities. Rather than focusing on technical aptitude, each artwork serves as a visual essay about the applicant’s inner thoughts that appeal to admissions boards beyond GPA, SAT, and other extracurricular activities.
