VISUAL ARTS PORTFOLIO
Ceramics, Design, Fine Arts, Illustration, Photography: Please upload 15–20 examples of what you believe are your strongest pieces. Portfolio artwork may include a variety of 2D and 3D works such as photography, painting, illustration, ceramics, sculpture, digital imaging, printmaking, and metal-smithing. Typical portfolios include several direct observational work (i.e. work drawn or painted from life, not a photograph; examples include self-portraits, figure drawings, still-lifes, landscapes, etc.). These drawings from life show us how you problem solve visually as well as how prepared you will be coming into the Foundations program.
