    The Hopeful RISD Portfolio (Opinions Needed!)

    Hey guys!

    I'm a high school senior who recently decided to go to art school. (A year ago?) I was always into art, but never knew it would be something to look into.

    I really want to apply to RISD. My scores are very high in high school and my SAT score is pretty decent, since I know thats what they look for. But here are some things I plan to put in my portfolio: (The not so decent part.)








    So should I try to apply for early action when the revised one comes out in October?

    Got any figure drawing? Portraits? That could help. Maybe it's just me, but I'd leave out the dog--looks a little rough to be in there.

    I'd say that you've got a pretty decent shot at getting in.

    Also, have you done your home-assignments yet? Y'know, the bike, the environment, the other one? My understanding of RISD is that those carry a fair bit of weight.

    Good luck!

    I'm working on figure drawings right now actually. I barely got a chance to work with nude models yet but I enrolled in their portfolio prep class so I really hope to post more up for more critiques!

    This is one of the ones that I have, that I quickly took with my phone. Sorry for the horrid quality!



    From what I heard from Pre-College, theyre getting rid of the bike and theyre re-doing the whole application process and it will be posted on October, so I have to wait for that. I'm pretty kept out on the dark on what I should do and not do since I'm pretty new at this and took a total of 5 artclasses in my life>_>.

    Note: The dog is a sketchbook page.

    Awesome. Get 3-4 figure drawings in there like that and you should be set. And you might want to do a self portrait or two--they're pretty standard in a college portfolio but will really show what you know.

    They're getting rid of the bike? Lucky you.

    And yeah, sketchbook pages (unless you've got some really finished sketchbooks) are typically left out. Some school actually want them, though. I just don't think RISD is one of those.
