Art Portfolio Guidance
Students show their talent and strength by presenting their own portfolios. The requirements for a portfolio vary from university to university, but without exception, they all pay close attention to the process of students' work creation. Therefore, it is necessary to describe the creation process of each works clearly with words and pictures when submitting art portfolios. In addition, it is required to illustrate the process of creation from the aspects of the main body of work, including the production process, initial ideas, first drafts, materials used and cuttings.
Short-term Exchange Program and Summer Camp
We will regularly organize students to attend short-term courses in art schools in Europe, America, Russia and other countries, so that students can experience the study environment and life in various art schools in advance.
