Do Colleges Like Artists

Did you know that colleges are interested in your creative and artistic pursuits, even if you don't plan to major in the arts? If the arts have been a major part of your academic or extracurricular life, you might want to showcase that in your application via a portfolio or arts supplement. Curious about how to leverage your artistic talents as a part of your applications to colleges? Read on for our top portfolio-related FAQs. I've been hearing about creative portfolios. I'm into the arts. Should I think about submitting one? Students applying for Bachelor of Fine Arts (BFA) programs who are seeking a pre-professional arts education. These programs will require students who intend to major in an artform to submit examples of their skills, aesthetic, and talents, and these portfolios are typically the most important part of a student's application. Students who have a special talent in the arts who are applying to BA programs (of any major) at schools that accept arts supplements. Many top-tier BA programs (especially at liberal arts colleges) will allow students to include a portfolio with their applications to showcase their talents. Can art really help me get into a school? Sometimes, yes, it really can. Keep in mind that colleges are looking to build a diverse class and are eager to understand your talents. Sharing your artwork can help you stand out, and if you indicate your eagerness to participate in the artform on campus, you are showing exactly how you'd fit into and engage in the college's community.

39;t portfolios just a thing for visual artists?

That can be a very valuable piece of your application. But wait, I like art but I don't want to study it in college. That's okay. You could be applying as a neuroscience major or engineer but still submit, for example, your visual art portfolio (assuming your college of choice accepts them as part of your application). This will add to your story and help admissions officers get to know you in a new way. Aren't portfolios just a thing for visual artists? No! Portfolios are for artists and makers across disciplines: music, dance, theater (on- and off-stage), film, creative writing, journalism, video game design, graphic design, fashion, music business & producing, product & industrial design, even sometimes engineering and robotics. Ok, you've sold me. I want to submit a portfolio. But who actually reviews it? It depends. BFA programs often have arts-specific admissions offices, and your materials are reviewed by professors and arts admissions officers, who then make recommendations to the overall university admissions office. For BA applicants (both prospective arts majors and other prospective majors), sometimes these portfolios are reviewed by professors who then make recommendations to the admissions office; sometimes the portfolios are simply reviewed by admissions officers.

And what exactly would I be submitting? The number of pieces and formats will vary by discipline and major. In general, visual artists/designers will want to have 10-20 pieces that demonstrate depth and breadth, and performing artists will want to submit 3-6 pieces and/or a highlight reel. Some performance programs also require submission of a taped prescreen. Whatever your discipline, it's a good idea to take a look at the portfolio / arts supplement requirements of your colleges of interest well in advance of deadlines so that you have time to ensure you have the right number of pieces, monologues from the right time period, etc. When you choose your pieces, keep in mind that colleges and arts admissions officers are interested in more than just your technical skills - they're looking for your creativity, style, point of view, and what making artwork means to you. So when choosing materials to include in your portfolio, you want to include pieces that will highlight that. Within a college's arts supplement submission platform, you might also have opportunities to submit an arts resume that articulates your big projects and experiences, a letter of recommendation from an arts teacher, and/or an artist statement that gives insight into how and why you do what you do.

All of this sounds great, but what if a school doesn't have a place for an arts supplement, or I'm an artist in a discipline other than the ones they accept? Some schools will offer students an opportunity to include a weblink in their application - this is another great way to showcase your creative talents and entrepreneurial pursuits. You can create a thoughtfully curated website, YouTube page, Instagram handle, etc., and include that. Great. So what should I be working on now to make myself stand out when it's time to apply? Use spring and summer to keep building your portfolio materials. If you're looking for formal instruction, some summer arts programs have transitioned very successfully to online formats, including RISD, Interlochen, and Putney. Now is also a great time to get creative, and keep developing your interests, skills, and techniques in more informal ways. Whatever you do, just keep creating!

Although her words are harsh, it is because she never sugar coated her words with her friends.

Scott Shelly ( Hangul:셸리 ) is one of the female protagonists in the webtoon. She begins a one-sided relationship with Jay at the start of the series but as the story progress they have a mutual crush on each other and as of chapter 378 they are in a relationship. Shelly is the only female member of the Humming Bird Crew. Because she stayed at England before coming to Korea her personality is perceived as very headstrong. She does not like it when people talk badly about her friends, especially Jay. Shelly also has a lot of stamina and strength, she can keep up with the group's pace when racing and can actually send people flying with her punch (Although that may be for comedic reasons) but never got into the street fights with the guys of the crew. When she was hit on in her first appearance on the series she refused with a lot of sass. Mia described her as someone who can confidently express her thoughts and feelings. Although her words are harsh, it is because she never sugar coated her words with her friends. And with Jay, Shelly is very clingy and flirtatious. She has very foreign features: pale skin, her eyes actually look more mint green in color than blue, blond wavy hair. It is known later in the series that she has a tattoo in the side of her arm near the wrist that reads out "temet nosce" or "Know Thyself". At school she wears her uniform usually without the red vest and both wears the skirt and pants.

She is often seen wearing high-end brand clothing, but also occasionally wearing street wear and tomboyish clothes. When riding her bike, she usually wears a jacket and helmet with the same color as her eyes or the Hummingbird crew's hood. She is tall, with long thin legs, a small waist and a bigger bust. Not much is known about Shelly, but it is established that she is from England and she requested to transfer to Sunny High School because of Jay. It was told in an early episode (Ep. 27) that she will be in Korea for one semester. Shelly is the granddaughter of Sunny High School's principal, Nick. When Shelly was a kid, she didn't want to get married and promised Nick that she will just live with him forever, which caused Nick to think that Shelly is not interested to guys until she got interested in Jay. That also caused the over protectiveness of her grandfather. Jay saw what happened and chased the thieves to get her purse back. She refused on taking him to the hospital but Jay refused. She picked up his student ID that had fallen to the ground and, motivated by her encounter with Jay, called her grandfather, asking him to let her attend Sunny High School. Her second meeting with Jay was in their classroom. She kissed him out of the blue and the gossip that Shelly and Jay were in a relationship quickly spread around the school.

39;ll forgive him if he became her boyfriend for a week and Jay agreed.

When Jay, Dom and Minu got suspended, Shelly visited them and scolded Dom and Minu badly about how Jay got caught with their actions. Jay got pissed and told her to screw off, she ended up crying and running away. When Jay was about to say sorry, he got a pink rose from Minu, saying that he should give it to her. He couldn't and Shelly went on saying that she'll forgive him if he became her boyfriend for a week and Jay agreed. She joined Hummingbird as the only female on the team, she continued to flirt with Jay and when Jay was teaching Mia how to ride a bike, she kept on intervening and wanting him to teach her even though she knows how. On a special episode, Shelly was seen riding a bike in Jay's neighborhood. Minu and Kay noticed her, Kay was thinking of who might Shelly go out with and ended up being shocked that it was his brother. In the last scene, Jay and Shelly are resting after riding their bike together, and she comments that Jay suits biking more than studying. The Preliminaries for the League of Street has started, only Dom and Jay were able to race at the first two rounds. After that, they found out that Jay's birthday was near and planned to celebrate it. She didn't showed up at school on his birthday because she was the one who prepared the gift that they got for him.

They pulled Shelly of Jay who was already littered with kiss marks.

When the boys with the worried June except Jay planned to give Jay a strong alcoholic drink, they didn't expect Shelly to drink it, thinking it was juice. They are dumb-founded and later on, a drunk Shelly came closer to Jay and told her how she was hurt by his actions and proceeding to kiss him the second time. They pulled Shelly of Jay who was already littered with kiss marks. Mia was the one who brought Shelly home, when she was sober enough, Mia asked her if she liked Jay which she answered yes. Mia told her how she envied her for being able to confidently express her thoughts and feelings. Shelly answered that she doesn't understand Mia's concern and told her an advice to start believing in herself more and learning to love herself. This pushed Mia to contact the modeling agency that reached out to her. Before the race, Shelly was being hit on by a member of the Bullet Crew who will be racing against them. The glasses guy kept on hitting on her even when she's denying him. Vinny came to her rescue and punched the guy when he didn't stop.

39;s house in hopes that they could get her to come to school.

That led to the glasses guy to take drugs to have a revenge against the Hummingbird Crew. Shelly took the lead until he passes the baton to June. As the race ended, she tried to kiss Jay in his sleep but he moved and she wasn't able to do so. She also took the test with Minu and Dom since, in a sense, she is still a student at Sunny High. When Mia was modeling, a bunch of girls kept on talking about her, gossiping about Mia like dating an old guy or having a sugar daddy to be able to model. Shelly obviously tried to help her. Yuna and Shelly later on went to Mia's house in hopes that they could get her to come to school. On the way riding a bus, a guy came up on her behind and was hitting on her, she shut him down while cursing, very contrasting of her appearance. When Yuna, Mia and Shelly were talking at the park near Mia's house, Shelly started saying something harsh to Mia, although it is a way to actually let Mia see what's happening beyond her room which she choose to lock herself with. Yuna reprimanded Shelly, saying she was too harsh and Mia broke down but then was silent at what Shelly said. After that talk, the three of them came at Heri's bike shop so that Mia can say thank you.

After that, she was asked by Minu, Dom and Jay to accompany Mia because she will be more comfortable knowing Shelly was around. She said that she did stay because she was told to but in truth, she came because she is worried, when Mia fought back with her bullies and was slapped, Yuna and Shelly came to her rescue. Shelly even tripped the girl who slapped Mia. And told Yuna and her that it seems like there's nothing to be worried about anymore. Which made Mia smile. Nick (Grandfather) - it is seen that her grandfather is very loving and protective of her. He was ecstatic when she called to say that she was moving to Korea. When she went to her first day of school at Sunny High he was seen outside her classroom being protective and calling her 'his sweet Shelly.' He perceived her as an innocent child who had no interest in boys, that is until she met Jay. This might be because of when Shelly was a child, she said to her grandfather that she will never get married and live forever with him. Shelly's Dad - The only time that Shelly's dad was mentioned was when she asked him to take her bike apart and send it to her in Korea.
