Первый слайд презентации: How to make an art portfolio for college or university ( the ultimate guide)
The purpose of this article is to help applicants prepare their portfolio for college. It contains useful tips on creation and design portfolio, accompanied by plenty of visual examples. In addition, the article provides advice from representatives of colleges in America and Europe. This will help to get a more accurate idea of what is expected from applicants.
We learn from the article that the presentation of your portfolio is very important. The organization and organization of your portfolio directly affects the perception of work. A good layout helps to bring the composition to the eyes, a professional approach, shows your commitment and desire to study at a university or college: it leaves a positive, memorable impression. Below I will give some useful tips that I learned from the article.
Portfolio Tips : • Select a simple, professional format that allows your work to be viewed easily. If a portfolio size isn’t specified, choose something that works well for your own work and that can be transported easily. A3, A2 or A1 is usually fine. • Choose plain, neutral portfolio colours (black, grey, white etc ) and avoid busy, decorative or patterned presentations (you want emphasis to remain on your artwork). Similarly, avoid reflective surfaces that hamper vision (for example, glazing paintings or clearfiles with shiny plastic). • Think about the composition of each page – which images are facing each other, whether the colours work well together etc. Consider the relationships between pieces, especially the relationship between sizes, colours and format of work.
Portfolio Tips: If you are asked to submit a specific number of images, ensure that each of these is a different piece of work. Where a certain number of sheets are asked for, it may be possible to mount smaller works onto a single sheet. If you want to submit different angles of one piece of work, it is usually best to digitally submit these on one sheet, or as one image. Read the guidelines of the particular university or college you wish to apply to carefully to find out what is expected. Start and end with a great piece of work, so that you create a great initial and final impression. Space other great work evenly throughout your portfolio (avoiding a clump of weaker work). Think about grouping similar work together, by medium, subject or style – perhaps as a series of projects – or chronologically. Aim to make it appear coherent, rather than a whole lot of scattered, disconnected pieces.

In conclusion, I’ll say that I was interested to know that some institutions offer the opportunity to check your portfolio before sending it (“preliminary check of the portfolio”). American students can also visit National Portfolio Day, where they can receive feedback on their current portfolio from universities and colleges. They are held throughout the United States and are highly recommended. It seemed to me that the article is really useful and shows a view of the portfolio from different angles. Thank you for the attention
