Bring my art to a college
Can I bring my art to a college interview?
Art is really a part of my life, and I’ve
mastered it over years.
But I’m not going
to study art at college (I’m going there
for sciences and then med school).
What I’m asking is whether showing
my art will help me to get admitted.
Why would you need to show your art at an interview for a science program? Commonly, students do not show their works at interviews.
It is not an arts program, so there is no point in that.
You, of course, can do whatever you want.
If you are applying to an art school, definitely show your art.
If not, it serves no purpose.
You know what would work better than showing works?
An award letter from some art competition.
That will show you as a dedicated personality and impress them.
Why not? Do show them!
No matter the program, admission officers look for interesting personalities with different hobbies. If you demonstrate your dedication to something, it will add you their respect.
Don’t miss your chance to impress these people.
You can show them when speaking about your interests.
It can work.
Show only for an art class.
If you’re gonna study art then show, if no then don’t.
If you were a prospective art student, it would be reasonable and even required to bring a portfolio. However, you are applying for a sciences program. The admission officers of that department most likely do not have enough qualification to assess your art.
It does not mean your art won’t help. You should mention that you do art; it will impress the admission officers and present you as an interesting personality with different talents.
You can contact the office of admissions and ask them if you can attach your art to the application. You can take your portfolio to the interview, but I advise that you don’t show it unless they get interested and ask you to show.
