As you assemble your portfolio, consider these recommendations:
Include 10-20 original pieces of artwork completed
in seventh or eighth grade. One of the selections may be a sketchbook
of your ideas and preliminary drawings. Do not include copies
in the style of” famous artists.
Artwork should be from
observation–portrait, figure, interiors,
still-life, landscapes, and cityscapes. You may also add some
work from imagination and memory.
The work should demonstrate
your understanding of composition and the Principles of Design:
- Balance /Emphasis
You may select works that are thematic to show an in-depth investigation
of an idea OR you may include a variety of subjects to show a
breadth of interests.
Include a variety of media such as drawing,
painting, collage, printmaking, and media-technology to demonstrate your skill with
different tools, materials, and techniques.
