If you plan to apply to the Art and Design High School: Architectural Design program you’ll need a competitive art portfolio.
When Art and Design High School admissions look at your Art Portfolio, what they’re doing is looking for strong candidates for their program. They are looking at your artwork to understand your unique artistic abilities and talents. They are looking for potential, that means how your present skills will grow and develop over the four years you will be spending at their school.
