Art Application

Free your talent

How does an art application differ from others?

The admissions of art programs focus relatively more on the portfolio and the artistic accomplishment than the English proficiency or GPA of the applicants.

Thus, when composing essays, applicants’ very unique inspirations or innovative goals in the art field need to be highlighted. For example, applicants for the Fashion Design program may attend fashion weeks and get close to the latest designs building up their ideas for delivery via essays.

Our students may run into the following questions

Do you share their concerns?

I’ve no idea how to create my portfolio. It will be nice if I could be advised by professionals.

How do I prepare my portfolio to meet the unique requirement by each school while remaining a common outline?

Good programs in art schools close their applications quite early. How do I plan ahead to complete my application in time?

Undergraduate programs of the art in America lead to BFA (Bachelor of Fine Arts) or BA (Bachelor of Arts) degrees. BFA programs focus on intensive courses in art and design, while BA programs pay more attention to humanities in the curriculum, including literature and history. Graduate programs of the art lead to MFA (Master of Fine Arts) degree, which is the highest degree that one can earn in this area. This degree is suitable for those who seek an in-depth study on art in the duration of 2-3 years.
Although different institutes have different standard and evaluation terms, most of them value common key factors, such as the applicant’s portfolios, art-relevant background, strong recommendations by big names in art field, interviews and essays. Meanwhile, students should gather admission information about their dream school as early as possible to leave sufficient time for application.
There are over 300 art institutes available for application in America. Students may conduct detailed research on their target schools by looking through information like the core curriculum, class size, facilities, faculty, location, and history, and choose those interest you most and suit you best.
Portfolio reflects one’s potential in art field and demonstrates one’s artistic skills and original ideas the most. Therefore, your works in portfolio should tell your creativity, skills, insight, and other related originality. In other words, a portfolio should be a comprehensive demonstration of your art creation ability. And please be aware that different institutes may have diverse standards for evaluating portfolios.
The admission offices in the arts institutes will not only evaluate your expressive ability in art creation, but also emphasize on your artistic ideology and career planning in this field. Thus, you could prepare interviews following the items below: art education background; clear description of your works; enthusiasm and devotion to art; as well as your personal ideas, critics or analysis of art. Remember to present the sincerest, the most passionate and confident performance to the interviewer.
Compared with other programs, the cost of art programs is higher in general, and it keeps increasing on a yearly basis. Public institutes cost less than private one, and the difference in location may lead to very different living expenses. In average, the tuition of an art program in the US is $42,000 per year and the total expenses would be RMB 400 to 500 thousand/year.
