A Foundation Portfolio Review is required of all art and art education majors enrolled in the College of Fine and Performing Arts upon successful completion of the foundation coursework. This portfolio is different from the end of semester portfolios required by individual instructors. It is the student’s responsibility to carefully read and follow these guidelines in preparing their Foundation Portfolio. To better select work for their portfolio, students should refer to the assessment categories on the attached sample portfolio evaluation form. If students have any questions concerning these guidelines, they should seek advisement from their foundation instructor(s) before submitting their portfolio. Students must pass the portfolio review to continue in the program, and before they can register for further studio art courses.
Work from all of the following four foundation courses must be included in the portfolio:
Art 1521 • Foundation Drawing
Art 1501 • Fundamentals of 2-D Design
Art 1522 • Intermediate Drawing
Art 1502 • Fundamentals of 3-D Design
