Portfolio Outline

It is important that your portfolio reflects something that is individual to you. It is essential to share your creative process of thinking through your ideas in your artwork. We encourage you to express your personal interests through a range of materials and mediums with specialist staff, including 2D, 3D and moving image, whilst also providing evidence of intellectual enquiry within your work. Thus inspiring you to follow a creative journey with much experimentation and reflection, logging your work in progress along your way.  It is important to demonstrate how you have managed to resolve visual and conceptual problems, which have in turn led to a series of innovative outcomes. The end purpose, is for both universities and employers, to discover the qualities that are unique to you. We stress that it is ‘Your Creative Journey’ that really matters!
