Design Portfolio Requirements
SASD is looking for a passion for art and design in a portfolio. We recommend that students choose from the following for inclusion in their portfolio: drawings, paintings, posters, photography or video, sculpture, ceramics, fashion, or work for a school yearbook or class.
Submissions should contain 10-12 samples of your work. Portfolios may be emailed, mailed in on DVD, posted to a personal web site, or hand delivered in hard copy form. If a student does not have art or design work or attends a school that does not provide art or design classes, he or she may contact SASD for an assignment to complete at home. In these cases, we encourage students to visit SASD so a faculty member can provide both examples and materials. Please contact firstname.lastname@example.org for further information.DENTAL HYGIENE
