Artist Statement
“I am an international student studying at a high school in the U.S. I am currently preparing the art school admission portfolio for my regular decision colleges, as well as a concentration portfolio for scholastic competition (a school requirements.)

I didn’t realize art school was an option for college until my sophomore year of high school. Mostly, I learned how to draw from high school art class. Until I committed to the idea of applying to art school for college, I started to do more research on art making.

In the past, summer I participated in a summer pre-college program with a focus on illustration major. My interested majors for college including illustration, printmaking, and drawing.

For my portfolio, I’m wondering how to start more experimental projects to extend the variety of media because I know a lot college admission wants to see risk-taking during the art-making process, and I’m afraid most of my pieces seem ‘too safe’ or not interesting.”
