I need to make an art portfolio for the college course I'd like to do, but unfortunately my art teacher isn't the best and i would really appreciate any help on the matter. Below is the list of requirements for the portfolio. Again any help is greatly appreciated. Thank you.
Your portfolio should:
- Be selective: include and highlight only your best work, excluding early works unless there are some exceptional pieces. Do not “pack” it with any more than 30 pieces. (We appreciate quality, not quantity)
- Show evidence of hard work, commitment and quality
- Not include 3D work (only 2D documentation of 3D work)
- Clearly identify your role if team work is included
- Include notebooks, cuttings, creative sketchbooks or visual diaries indicating your interest in the discipline
- Present your work to your best possible advantage
- Not be a copy from photographs. Do not include any artwork which is a copy of someone else’s work
- Include a CV (one per programme applied to) with details of hobbies, technical skills and involvement in activities related to the programme you are applying to. As information on age or educational background is not used for assessment purposes, this should not be included in your CV.
We would like to see a portfolio that demonstrates a high level of visual skill, creativity, self-motivation, inventiveness, experimentation, flexibility and stylistic variation.
For this programme, make sure you include:
- Drawings (observational and life to include different media) and 3D sketch work. Drawing and observation skills are as important as 3D construction skills. You should demonstrate a creative imagination and an ability to develop concepts in 2D and 3D (3D work should be submitted as photographs)
- Colour work - painting, collage, etc
- Project work dealing with concept and ideas
- Photographs of 3D model work (to include different materials)
- Photographic work (optional) or support work of personal interest
- Computer based artwork
- Technical drawings
