Guidelines for Submission of Portfolios

As an applicant for admission to the Art Education Program, you are required to submit a portfolio of your best work. The portfolio should be submitted in one of the two following formats:

  1. A digital portfolio submitted on a CD.  Follow the above guidelines and submit as JPEG files or as a Power Point presentation.
  2. Original artwork may be submitted, i.e. drawings, prints, watercolors, etc.  These pieces are not to exceed 18” x 24”. Plastic or paper covers should protect original works.

All work should number at least twelve (12) pieces and no more than twenty (20) pieces. If the portfolio needs to be returned to you, you are responsible for either the postage, or the pick-up of the portfolio. A self-addressed, stamped envelope should be included for return of materials. Insurance, if any, is also the responsibility of the applicant. The Art Education Department cannot be responsible for the cost of shipping.

Please submit your application to:
