Hello everyone!
Just a quick question;
I have a 17 year old brother who recently quit high school to be home
schooled. Since he loves art, and may want to go to art school, (and since
I'm oficially an art teacher, even though I'm currently just a lowly sub,) he
asked me to help him develop a good portfolio for college applocation.
So my question is, what sorts of things should he (ideally) have in there?
What types of things really tend to catch interviewers' eyes? Should he
demonstrate mastery of "realism", experimentation with abstract concepts, 3-d
work, etc.? Should he have a lot of variety or show extensive development of
one area?
Thanks in advance for your input - this is such a great resource for those of
us with less experience!! :-)
