When I taught high school art, I used to write to all the art schools for
their free and beautiful college catalogues. Most of them are full of
student work as well as a list of what they require in an admission
portfolio. Universities and large liberal arts colleges rarely require a
portfolio unless you are applying for art scholarship money, but almost all
of the art schools DO. Most of them have pretty similar requirments--
they want to see proficiency in the major media (pencil, ink, paint, perhaps
a 3-D piece) and an example of most art genres (still life, portrait,
landscape, design projects or graphic design of some sort.)
You should be able to access art schools on line for catalogue requests.
good luck.
