Purchase a Portfolio Critique

Art School Portfolio Critiques

We critique art school portfolios for students applying to BFA, Post-Baccalaureate, and MFA programs as first year students, as well as transfer students. Our staff artists provide a 30 minute long, detailed assessment 8-20 artworks.

We begin the portfolio critique by speaking about the entire body of work, identifying aspects of the artwork that is seen repeatedly throughout the portfolio, and providing overall strategies than be applied to every artwork.

Next, we critique each individual artwork, focusing on specific areas of each piece, and making recommendations for specific techniques and strategies for improvement.

Artist Portfolio Critiques

Whether you’re just getting started, or have been working for many years as a professional artist, an artist portfolio critique is a great way to get a fresh pair of eyes on your work. 

We’ll customize our critique to fit your specific goals. Perhaps you recently graduated from art school and need assistance determining what direction to take your work in. Maybe you would like to start approaching galleries and need to know whether your artwork is ready to show at a professional level.

Or, you are working independently on a new series of artworks and need some concrete strategies to keep your studio practice lively and vibrant. Wherever you are in your studio practice, our staff artists are ready to support and encourage you through an artist portfolio  critique.
