Requirements summary

Use your portfolio to showcase your interests, skills, and creative potential. You may show SAiC work created across media or focus entirely in one medium. Work can range from observational to abstract. We have no media-specific limitations nor do we present portfolio assignments.

SAIC discourages work that is copied or rendered directly from photographs, magazines, or other artists' works. Also, if any work in the portfolio is the result of collaboration, please include the names and roles of those who participated in the completion of the piece.
