Course and Portfolio Information
We are looking for good Art/Design portfolios that demonstrate an ability to draw from life – portraits, full bodies, objects. Use of diverse art materials to demonstrate a good sense of colour and an understanding of light, shade, textures is expected. Evidence of three dimensional skills such as sculpting can be included as photographic images.
Makeup work may be included to demonstrate your specific interest in stage and screen characters. However, we are not looking for candidates only interested in Makeup and this is not a beauty Makeup course, it focuses on character creation with the use of Makeup and prosthetics. A Makeup portfolio alone WILL NOT demonstrate the above.
We recommend that you come visit the college on our open days. You can come speak with staff and students and we provide lectures on the courses and application process and can answer any additional questions. Please check our News + Events page for details on future open days.
