8 Tips for Creating an Artists Portfolio for College

Posted by Brenda Kristich on Jan 9, 2014 3:04:00 PM

Art Summer Camps

When thinking about creating your art portfolio for college, there are a lot of things to consider.  Which pieces should you include? How many mediums are appropriate? How many pieces are enough? There is a lot to decide on, but if you start early, take your time, and ask for some guidance from teachers and counselors, you should be able to create a stunning portfolio that is sure to impress an art school.

  1. Research schools. Every art program is looking for different criteria when accepting portfolios. Research the schools you want to go to and make sure you have what they are looking for.  It might not be as simple as creating one portfolio and sending it to several schools in the same exact format.  Some want pictures or your work, some want originals, some ask you to complete a specific piece.  Find out what each school is looking for and make sure you tailor your portfolio to each school.
