What do you want to do after High School?
Are you thinking about studying art
or going to an Arts College?
Here are some things to think about...
1. What do you want from your education and/or your school?
If you want to get a job in animation, look at schools that focus on animation. If you want to do culinary, find a school that offers it.
Different schools offer different subjects, degrees, costs, scholarships, and opportunities.
2. Get a Portfolio together.
Buy a portfolio tote at Hobby Lobby or where ever you can find one. Gather up all your artwork and look it over.
Follow these guidelines to help you put it all together:

3. Going Digital
Create a CD with all of your artwork. Include the titles, media, and dates on all your work. If you want to get really fancy, create a free website to build your online portfolio. Impress your interviewers by not only showing them your actual artwork but then pull out your smart phone or laptop to wow them with your online savvy!
