Students are required to:
1. make a portfolio (the sole criteria on which
assessment will be based). Not only will acceptance be based on
the portfolio, but the strength of the works will allow us to
fairly determine your placement in the Visual Arts program. Once
you have applied, a portfolio review date and a Portfolio Registration
Form will be sent to you. Portfolios should be picked up on the
designated days given to you upon delivery. This portfolio should
- a still life of at least three every day objects grouped and
drawn from observation.
- a full-figure drawing of a person standing, seated or reclining
and drawn from observation.
- a self portrait of yourself, preferably done in pencil using
- a landscape drawing or painting created from observation.
Use your yard, school, neighborhood or a park as a resource.
- four to six additional works that are representative of your
arts interests, abilities, commitment, and experience. The works
and ideas represented should be your own and not taken from
published sources. Suggested mediums may include any of the
following: watercolor, acrylics or oil paintings, pencil, pen,
chalk, charcoal, or pastel; printmaking - linoleum, etching,
litho, mono-prints or silk screen; collage or mixed medium;
photography, sculpture and pottery.
Preparation of slides:
All framed or three-dimensional works should
be represented with slides or photographs. Each slide should be
numbered, have its top identified, and include the student's name.
A "slide inventory" should be included with the slides
on a separate piece of paper where corresponding numbers describe
the size, title and medium.
