Auditions will consist of three sections: studio performance, a review of the portfolio and sketchbook, and an interview.

Studio Performance
Two live audition-day drawings: self-portrait from observation, and creative landscape from imagination. Each participant will be provided with the necessary materials. Applicants will be expected to demonstrate ability to complete the studio portion of the audition by drawing from imagination and by drawing from observation of a three-dimensional subject.

Portfolio and Sketchbook Review
The portfolio must include ten examples of original art work (no more, no less). The sketchbook should be 8” x 11”. Please include a majority of observation art that accurately portrays three-dimensional subject matter as observed from life, not from still image sources.

A member of the faculty will interview the applicant to determine the levels of motivation, commitment, and suitability for the program.
