For PORTFOLIO PREPARATION In presenting your portfolio, please note that each work should be described with a title (even if “untitled”), medium and dimensions. Number of pieces It is a good idea to include 15 to 20 pieces of work in your portfolio. Less than 10 may not show enough diversity of ideas. More than 20 can become repetitive. Include only your strongest work instead of trying to show everything you’ve done. Your art teacher(s) can help you edit your portfolio if you’re not sure what to include. Color Color can be represented in a variety of ways: in your drawings, paintings, and even in 3-D work. When looking over your portfolio, check to see that you have a variety of color projects examining different color relationships. Composition The way you arrange shapes and forms on a page demonstrates your sense of composition. Even in realistic painting and photographs, the way you choose to crop an image and choose the view shows your compositional skills. Sketchbooks No matter what your area of interest, sketchbooks show how you think, and this is a very important element in a portfolio. Sketchbooks need not be fancy, but should show examples of various projects. In looking at these, the reviewer can see how you develop a project from start to finish. The Department of Art and Design asks that you upload your work electronically as part of your application. One’s artwork is informed by a broad range of experiences, including art created by other artists – both past and present. Try to visit museums often to look at both recent and historic work. Seeing a work of art in person is very different from looking at a reproduction in a book, and will help you to better understand color and technique. Galleries are the best places to see current trends, and some show design as well as fine art.
