The first step in developing a portfolio is to create a list of first choice and back-up colleges that you are planning to apply to and contact each of their admissions departments to obtain their particular portfolio and admissions requirements.
NCAD require that applicants fulfil their brief so, if you plan to apply there, see the following link before you book our course: http://www.ncad.ie/portfolio/brief.html
This course has been designed to not only help you understand this (for some students) bewildering brief and it’s requirements, but will motivate and stimulate your creative thought. It will inspire you to make things from found objects, take numerous reference photographs, be visually aware, to explore everyday items – be excited by the mundane and, above all, be inspired and absorbed by your drawing. This is a conceptual brief, so our exercises are devised to act as springboards that encourage you to explore and experiment. You will begin to understand ways of thinking and drawing that suit you and discover materials and processes that help you produce the work.
