What Is An Artwork Portfolio?

A portfolio is a set of art pieces that gathered for the purpose of showing your capability.  Schools have their own preference of what they want to see in applicants' submission, some schools even have specific demands of form that they want to see in students' portfolios.  In order to create a great portfolio, research is needed to know the school and skills needed in design industries.

Creating a Personalized
Portfolio

Artwork portfolios demonstrate individual skill, idea generation, personal artistic styles and the ability to create. Students will be guided by our professional instructors currently employed in visual design industries to create a set of outstanding artworks.
