Portfolio Critiques

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.

How to make the best use of your artist call  

An artist call is terrific for asking broad questions about your artwork in general. For example, you might ask us what you can do to improve your skills with color.  If you’re wondering what art media we think you should try out, or maybe you have a series of artworks you’d like to start and want to know where to begin, an artist call is a good fit.

We will tailor your artist call to your specific needs

Common topics include professional development; perhaps you would like to know whether you are ready to approach art galleries, or whether art school or a liberal arts college is a better choice for you.

Maybe you have interest in working in animation and want to know more about how that industry works and what you’ll need to study to be well equipped for the field.
