    I went back and reread the Hopefuls threads from years back. This one is absolutely deserted!

    I wonder if that means not as many people are applying. How many applied last year?

    about this thread seeming so deserted, i thought about it, and i think it may have to do with, the how to make a portfolio section on the ringling website. When i first found out about concept art, it was actually me searching for what should be in or how to make one's portfolio. now that the ringling(dot)edu website basically tells you all you need to know on that subject, there are less people asking questions about that on this forum. As a basic pattern it seems that these hopeful threads have a lot of sketchbook comparisons early on, and then they pick up again once everyone has applied, and now they are more nervous about payment and housing once they are accepted.

    at least this is the pattern I often see. I could be really wrong though.
    Fudge this AWESOME place!!!

    My SKETCHBOOK: please critique! i can take it!

    To limit one's maximum knowledge is to maximize one's limits.

    Sanity is wasted on the boring.

    I have a totally last minute question:

    I turned in my portfolio with 14 drawings and I just saw that transfers had to turn in at least 15 if studio credit was desired, however my admissions counselor said after acceptance more drawings can be sent in for consideration. Does anyone know if this is still the case even if my original portfolio only had 14 drawings.

    I would email but I'm hopeful someone here would get to me sooner to put me at ease.

    stay__see - That seems to be kind of a specific situation for the submission process, so I'd say your best bet would be to ask admissions at this point (especially since this thread has been slowing down). Whenever I needed a quick answer for something like that, I gave admissions a phone call and they would always help me out right away

    Sorry I can't be more of a help though, just wanted to post since it looks like you're needing a speedy response

    ^This IS a pretty slow thread, but I did get what I needed from them thanks!
    I guess that's a plus with smaller schools they help you right away.I'm not used to it with the university I go to now O_o

    Once accepted, talking with counselors is definitely the way to go as well. Certain things like this can be cleared up with one simple visit.

    BTW its not always worth it to transfer some courses... for me I didn't have to take perspective drawing in Freshman year because of a transfer credit from community college. While, yes, I saved money, in hindsight I missed a core part of my learning experience and I was definitely rusty when it came time to shine.

    Limewax, can you tell us a little bit about your experience as a transfer student at Ringling? Hopefully I'll be accepted into CA, but I've always wondered how transfer students fare at the college. What kinds of classes did you transfer in?

    hello ringling-ers, not a hopeful here but i do have a question that perhaps you could help me with:

    what are conidered the basic educational art topics at art level

    for example perspective,figure drawing- what else is assessed and taught at a foundation level?


    thank you

    perspective
    figure drawing
    value
    color
    composition
    3d form
    visually communicating ideas
    use of media

    Boiled down, these are the basics that are covered in Ringling's first year program and any decent foundations program. These topics can be covered by classes in a variety of ways but are consistently present and very fundamental.
