Beginner to Advanced Level Portfolio Preparation Programs:
For applicants for undergraduate programs, a portfolio should be composed of works that demonstrate basic skills, as well as an individual's creativity. A good portion of a portfolio should consist of works that exhibit fundamental skills such as life drawings, self portraits, still lifes and landscapes. Applicants who are interested in graphic design and architecture (i.e. non fine arts) are also expected to show these basic skills in visual arts (painting and drawing) rather than show works in the specialized area. There are a few exceptions to this general rule, i.e. F.I.T requires a specialized portfolio.
Transfer Student (Undergraduate):
For transfer students, a portfolio should include works that demonstrate proficiency in the area of speciality. These works should show fundamental skills in the area of interest, as well as basic skills (drawing and painting) in fine arts. Works should show basic skills in both areas, rather than highly specialized works.
Portfolio for graduate study should focus on the process of art making, from it's conception to it's construction. It's important to show a cohesive and thematic body of work.
