It’s a busy time of year for the art and fashion student as the college applications progress. Each time the student submits their portfolio to a different college or course they need to restructure it to suit the course requirements, editing and up-dating the content to place emphasis on different skills for the college assessment.
To do this the student lays out the portfolio and works with their tutors to select the order of pieces in the portfolio and how it will be presented. By laying out the work it is easier to see if essential elements like colour or line are missing and to see if the portfolio tells a visual story and flows well. It’s a fine balance and is an ongoing process during the application season which lasts from early February through to the end of May.
Below Margaret lays out her folder and discusses the options with other students in the class.
