除了 to fulfilling all of York College’s admissions requirements, a student seeking admittance into either the 美术 or 平面设计 主要 is required to submit a portfolio of 10 to 20 examples of artwork. The portfolio should contain the student’s best work to date, 反映一系列的能力, 兴趣和观念, 并在各种媒体上展示经验. 除了, an introductory artist’s statement must be included, and should be a brief synopsis of the applicant’s experience, 谁或什么对你有影响，如何影响, 以及对未来的期望.
The portfolio is to be submitted via York College’s online submission system (see link at bottom of this page). York College no longer accepts portfolio submissions via mail-in slide form or CDs. The applicant will then receive confirmation of receipt by email with a confirmation number and approximate decision date. A portfolio will only be reviewed after the applicant has been accepted to York College. Acceptance to York College does not guarantee acceptance into art programs. 学生 who do not yet have a prepared portfolio may be declared as a 临时美术 or 临时平面设计 主要.
The Portfolio Review Committee wants to get a sense of who the applicant is as an artist, through reading the artist’s statement and viewing his or her best work to date. 有各种媒体工作经验, interesting perspectives and subject matter indicate to the committee that the applicant has the potential for success in a college-level art program and beyond. A numerical score is given to the applicant, in areas, listed below. These numbers are then averaged for a final rating.
The committee asks these questions during the evaluation of a portfolio:
- Are the images of good quality in terms of focus and lighting?
- Is there a good sampling of several of the following media: ink, 铅笔, 柔和的, 石油, 丙烯酸, 拼贴画, 数字, 摄影, 雕塑, 织物, 珠宝, 陶瓷, 版画, 视频或网页?
- Has there been experimentation with both realistic and expressive drawing and composition?
- Are there varied subjects and concepts in the portfolio?
- Is the subject matter a reflection of the applicant’s interests?
The portfolio submission deadlines are November 1 (for entry in the Spring semester) and January 31 and March 15 (for entry in the Fall semester). The student will be notified by letter of the review committee’s decision approximately two weeks after portfolios are reviewed. Portfolios will be reviewed on an as received basis and accepted as space permits after the deadlines.
The portfolio should contain a minimum of two examples of work from each art course the student wishes to transfer to York College. Transfer credit in 平面设计 is given only for foundation courses (with the exception of Computer Graphics I), 艺术史课程和艺术选修课. Transfer credit in 美术 is given for foundation courses, 艺术史课程, art electives and any additional nine credits in art.
