– i didn’t really attend any formal art lessons outside of what was offered to me in high school and in a pre-college program i did in summer 2017
– i attended national portfolio day in 2017 and my portfolio got reviewed by risd, parsons, and pratt. i would highly suggest going!
– i applied to all of my schools regular decision
– in NO way am i trying to bash on the schools that rejected me

if you guys have any questions about applying to art school, i would love to answer them!! or if you want me to make a separate video on portfolio tips/handling college rejection, i’d be down.
