I help students answer these questions, find colleges that meet their needs and interests and prepare portfolios to gain admission to college programs which suit their needs and learning styles:
1) What type of art do you wish to study?
There are four main categories of artistic study, each offering several choices:
• Fine Arts- drawing, painting, printmaking, sculpture, photography, glass, ceramics, performance art/new genres
• Design - graphic design, industrial design, apparel or fashion design, illustration, commercial photography, or textile design/fibers
• Moving Image - film/video, animation, motion graphics/interactive design, game design
• Architecture - architecture, interior design/architecture, landscape architecture
2) Are you prepared to create a portfolio?
3) Which type of college best fits your artistic and academic needs?
• College of Art
• Liberal Arts College
4) What type of degree do you wish to pursue?
5) What do you want to do professionally when you complete college?
