In a portfolio critique, Prof Clara Lieu and our Teaching Assistants provide a detailed assessment of your overall portfolio, critiques each individual artwork, highlights what aspects are working well, and recommends concrete strategies for how to make progress.

Our staff will be honest, constructive, and candid in these critiques. Expect your critique to be tough and forthright. Keep in mind that the objective of a portfolio critique is to provide you with an expert opinion of how your portfolio will hold up in the highly competitive art school admissions process, or within the rigorous standards of the professional art world.

Artist Portfolio Critiques

Whether you simply want to hear another opinion on your artwork, you’re just getting started with your career, or have already been working as a professional artist for many years, you’ll receive advice and support for how to progress with your artwork according to your personal goals. 

Art School Admissions Portfolio Critiques

High school students who are applying for admission to art schools and colleges have the opportunity to get professional feedback on how to improve their portfolios. We recommend requesting a critique early, so that you have time to make changes.
