Your portfolio should include 12 – 15 pieces of your best and most recent work. When thinking about your portfolio, keep these goals in mind:
- Emphasize experimentation, concept, and a range of media
- Include class assignments and self-directed work
- Answer the question, “Why did I create this?” for each work’s description
Your application will be considered complete only after you have submitted your portfolio.
We know that each school is different, and it can be challenging to consider what to include when curating your portfolio. The Stamps Admissions Team can provide feedback that will help you decide which pieces would benefit your portfolio submission.
