    Question Portfolio Advice for Angel Academy & Florence Academy

    Ciao,

    I was wondering what AAA and the FAA look for in a portfolio submission? I am worried that my work isn't strong enough, as I only started taking drawing classes last year & I don't know how to paint. Below is the set of images I intend on sending.

    Any advice would be very much appreciated. I am also very interested in hearing from people who have attended/are attending either Academy as well.

    Grazie, cari!

    Hiya

    As a student of Angel Academy of Art, I can tell you that so far the school has pretty much always had sufficient space for all applicants - it's not like you're competing with hundreds of other students That may change over time as the school becomes more well-known; if there are more applicants than available places, they'll have to start getting picky. But right now afaik they aren't, so don't stress too much about the portfolio - just some of your best work, figurative work, etc.
