So today I'm going to be doing another art photography related video. So today I'm going to be telling you all how I got into the number one public art school in the country. I'm going to my junior year at BCU Arts, and I absolutely love the journey. I'm so excited to see what next year brings, and I truly do love school. So I started attending in 2016 after I graduated high school, and I'm going to be showing you today the portfolio, or leave some of the pieces that I included in my college application portfolio that eventually got me accepted into B C words, also telling you guys some tips and recommendations throughout the video. Yeah, you guys like to see my portfolio for my college application. Then just keep watching the Yes, VCU is the number one public art school in the country, and they are also number one in the sculpture department. I don't know what they are in a photo, But I'm pretty sure the number one and photo is Savannah College of Art and Design. Here's the first piece that I submitted into my portfolio, or at least included. So you can't really see any of the details of my fate. In editing, I'm pretty sure all I did was make the saturation like almost 2 100%. So that just brought out like these blues and purples. If you guys want to see my AP art portfolio, I did a P two d design, which is basically digital imaging. If you guys like to see that, I will definitely do that video for you as well. Pretty sure I included this in my college application. I'm not sure if it was my college application or dressed my AP portfolio, but it's just another photograph. Like these weird blue tones you see, I used three different photographs and I just play with the capacity and the modes of blending. I just got this really cool like, over laid kind of effect on. So tip number one, as if they really like to see Variety the first year of the Sea artist called Foo, and it's basically a whole year of like the basic art principal classes. So basically they want to see that you are prepared to tackle those core kind of classes, so they like to see a variety of work. So in my portfolio included painting, drawing, photography, digital art and then I also included, like 123 D pieces and really not even like the best at drawing. I'm not really sure, but I just know that my portfolio and a lot of my work I used this like squiggly design. So we have to create, like, a three D peace, including a photograph. I had, like, dead roses and answer had some negative filmstrips and, as you can see, just like hot glued those on and random places, and I also used the wax to kind of see it. So another drawing piece that I have where I kind of continue this like swirly design is this. I used my friends for those, and as you can see, I just like, shaded it with blue and purple color pencil again. Not my favorite thing that I've ever done, but they just really like seeing a variety of work. There's a digital drawing piece that I did so for this. I'm not really sure exactly what I was doing to make it not that high quality, but yeah, they really liked seeing that I was able to take my traditional art into the digital world. I'm pretty sure I submitted this as well, Unlike kind of not that Sure, just a picture of this gold leaf ashtray that my grandma had been. So here's the last piece that I want to show you that included in my portfolio this is the three D piece, as you can tell. Then in editing, I've just made easily super vibrant and the other one's really dull on. As you can see a hot glued moss and leaves on the edge of the picture to kind of bring that like nature aspect through on. Some other tips that I wanted to include on when you're applying to art school. So as for applying to college, make sure you include, like every single award that you've ever won for your art. Then you might be surprised and win an award for, and that's just something that you could include in your college application. I was never someone that really did anything besides art, but I included in my application that I was the co president of like my High school's photography club So if you have anything like that, just make sure to include in your college application. They really want to see that you do a lot with your life and that you're productive. Yeah, guys, that's all I have to share with you today about me applying and getting accepted to the number one public art school in the country.
