Documenting Your Creative Work

Why should I document my creative work?

Smart artists and designers document their work to assess their progress and to show what they are capable of doing. Plus, it will help you create a portfolio you can use for your Sophomore Review, job applications, and creating your own website. On a personal level, documenting your work shows your growth and development.

How do I document my work?

Students may consult with their faculty, especially their first year studio instructors. Matthew Prichard, the Digital Studio Coordinator, is also available to assist you. For ways to include work in your portfolio, speak with John Luther, Career Development Coordinator.
