In my opinion...Observational drawings are of utmost importance. Not only is
there demonstration of the ability to see but the student's compositional
ability is also displayed. It would not be uncommon to see 6-8 drawings using
different medium, graphite, ink, pastel etc. Conceptual pieces are next which
demonstrate the creative process. Dimensional drawings of a 3D piece for
instance gives the evaluator insight into the thought progression. Small
studies of a larger piece or a student sketchbook may be applicable here. 2-3
pieces are encouraged. The remainder (4-6 pieces) would encompass specific
interests of the student, ie. photography, graphic /technology art, fiber,
sculpture etc.

college reps supported my thoughts on necessary artwork in a high school
