Portfolio requirements for advanced standing students
Your portfolio has two major components, samples of your work and a supporting statement. Both are an important part of your application to ACAD, and a key way for the review committee to get to know more about you.
1. Samples of your work
Here’s where you get to really show us your stuff! Choose samples that best represent your abilities, your personality, and be sure to follow these guidelines:
- Select 20 to 25 samples of your recently completed artwork.
- Include artwork that relates to the specific program that you are applying for.
- Examples may include two and three-dimensional, traditional and nontraditional materials and techniques.
- Research drawings and images from sketchbooks are encouraged to help show creative thought processes and iterative skills.
