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.
