Art and Design Schools, Colleges and Universities typically require an art portfolio as part of the application process.
A portfolio is a body of work containing between 15 to 30 pieces of artwork which shows how the student’s skills and ideas developed over a period of time. The ideal portfolio has a range of drawings, paintings, or 3D artwork in addition to the student’s preferred medium, if different. It is very important to show the student’s creativity, personality, abilities, and commitment in the portfolio.
