High School Student
Art School Portfolio
“I plan on applying early decision to art school this fall, if my portfolio is in a good place. My high school, as academically challenging as it is, is limited in its opportunities for art education. Over the past two years, I have worked outside of school to try and create as much as I can through various pre-college programs, and by myself.
I enjoy character design, as well as painting and pushing the boundaries of everything that I create. I love experimenting with different effects and techniques in my work, especially through digital media, such as Photoshop. I am motivated by my love of storytelling and creating characters, as well as the people I meet/observe in my everyday life.
My plan is to apply to my top choice art school early decision, but I am willing to revise and put more work into my portfolio (or even wait until regular decision, if necessary) if this/other reviews reflect that it is not ready for admission.
My short term goal is to create a strong portfolio that is worthy of admission to my top choice art school and my long term goal is to become a successful working artist. I would love to hear any feedback regarding the strength and competitiveness of my portfolio so that I can better my chances for a successful application.”
