Students will be asked to prepare the following and submit the portfolio online:

Digital Portfolio Submission
A candidate's portfolio should include 4-10 examples of your best original artwork. At least 2 of the artworks must be created outside of school and not related to a school assignment (think videos, zines, sewing, recording, sculpture, etc.) Your portfolio may include multiple media, including, but not limited to: sketchbook work, drawing, painting, sculpture, mixed media, design, photography, ceramics, digital artwork, performance, sound and video.

Piece of Original Artwork - “Multiple Viewpoints”:
Create a piece of artwork for your audition in response to the prompt, “multiple viewpoints.” This artwork can be created in any media. It is purposefully left open ended, please create an artwork that you feel addresses the idea of multiple viewpoints.  

Submit your portfolio by filling out THIS FORM.
You MUST be logged into your CPS email or a gmail account to submit this form. 

Interview:
Your audition will include a short interview where we will discuss your portfolio, the artwork you made for the “multiple viewpoints” prompt, and your interest and commitment to visual art.
Here are some prompts that you can prepare to answer:
      1. What prior visual art training have you received? 
      2. Why do you want to enroll in a visual art program and how do you see yourself using the skills you learn in visual art classes in the future?
