It’s always a good idea to visit a prospective school, so please consider attending one of our Open Studio days, when you can hear a program presentation, meet students, tour the studios, participate in a drawing session, and get some friendly feedback on your portfolio. There will be two Open Studio dates for Fall 2018 entry: Saturday November 4, 2017 and Saturday February 24, 2018.
Please call us if you can’t make these dates and would like some in-person advice from one of our instructors.
Entry is competitive and applicants must submit a portfolio and other documents through the online portal
SlideRoom. Please refer to the
Portfolio Requirements page for more information on what is expected of the portfolio submission and admission deadlines.
