I am starting to go to open days for university and have found that for the course i want to do (creative and expressive therapies) i need to make a art portfolio of 10 pieces and a good sketch book
If anyone has every done this before, what exactly do they expect from the portfolio and sketch book? does the sketch book have to lead somewhere or can it be an accumulation of ideas and then maybe one of the 10 pieces is a result of then ideas? do they look for more traditional art or do they like to see abit of everything?
Would be great to get answers to these as i am feeling very overwhelmed by the whole university thing
What do they want from my portfolio? Watch

When I went for my interview I took a selection of different pieces. They don't require one thing, they want to see what you can do. I suggest taking at least one piece that you have composed yourself and you are comfortable talking about it, as at mine they asked me to talk through all of my work, but go into more detail about one piece of work, explain what you have done and why. (One girl who did more sculptural work took good quality photos to show, instead of taking it all in.)
I was really quite stressed a few days before my interview, but don't worry about it! Everything went fine! Just be yourself, relax, and enjoy it!
Which university is it that you've got a interview for?
