Ask the Art Professor: What should you include in an art portfolio for art school or college?

Thank Jesus I found this, lest my SCAD portfolio be awful….

Preparing a portfolio for college admission is not a casual undertaking, it’s very common for high school students to underestimate how much time and labor is involved.  For most students it takes several months, even up to a year to create a body of work that is rigorous enough for the competitive art school and college admissions process.   If you can maintain a prodigious level of production, the quality of your work will progress tremendously and you’ll have many more pieces to choose from. Even of the portfolio requirements state that you only need 15 pieces, this means you should aim to create between 20-30 pieces. Not only will your work improve from more experience, but you’ll be able to weed out the weaker pieces and emphasize only your best work.

Every school is going to have their own unique set of requirements…

Christmas Eve OOTD + Christmas Day Presents

Christmas Eve OOTD

Top, skirt, accessories: Forever 21
Shoes: Marshall’s

Clockwise from top left: Stella by Stella McCartney Perfume, Brother Sewing Machine, Leather Jacket, Sweater

First off, a very merry Christmas to all of my followers!

I had actually meant to post my OOTD yesterday, when I wore it, but I got back home really late and I still had to finish my prescribed title draft x_x. I had a lot of fun coordinating this outfit because that cat crop top is literally my favorite crop top and the shoes are actually the cutest things in the world. *squee* The accessories are actually a secret Santa gift from one of my really close friends (◡‿◡✿).  Those of you who follow me on instagram (if you don’t, by the way, you probably should ;))  are probably aware of my little Sephora shopping spree where I bought Marc Jacobs blush and NARS foundation, which I’ve been using just about everyday since I got it. I’m even using it in that picture! My lips are a combo of Milani Lipstick in Black Cherry (11) and Maybelline Color Whisper in Petal Rebel (60). My eyes are basically Tarte eyeshadow, Marc Jacobs eyeliner, and Clinique high impact mascara.

Onto Christmas Day!

Oh man, this year was pretty hard on my family this year, so I wasn’t really expecting much for Christmas considering my college tuition is going to be about 50k/year, my mom went to the Philippines this year, and she got married. I was really surprised that I actually got anything this year, actually. I really loved all of the gifts, but my favorite one by far is my brand-new Brother SC9500 Computerized Sewing machine *________* I had really needed a sewing machine to do the portfolio portion of my FIT application, so this was literally the best thing ever for me. Other things I got were an OCC Lip Tar set including Anime, NSFW, Black Dahlia, and Memento, Stella by Stella McCartney perfume (one of my faves!), as well as a leather jacket and a sweater.

Anyways, I hope that you guys are having a great Christmas (if you do celebrate Christmas)~ Did you get any good presents? Give any great ones? What was your favorite?

Fashion Design Piece – Yay or Nay?

This is a rough sketch of one of the ideas I’m playing with for the mix and match portion of my FIT portfolio. The look consists of a layered lace cape with hood and fleece lining, a bishop sleeve shirt … Continue reading
