Admission to Rising Star is highly selective and preference is granted to applicants with a grade point average of 3.0 or higher on a 4.0 scale, a strong visual arts portfolio, and demonstration of maturity, leadership and responsibility.
Portfolios are evaluated on the following qualitative measures: aesthetic awareness, composition, drawing, design, color perception, spatial perception, quality of presentation, technique and originality. Strong 2-D and 3-D work that shows attention to technique, drawing, scale and original design are favorably considered.
Students are encouraged to submit their strongest work in any visual arts medium (drawing, painting, photography, animation or film short, etc.). Listed below are suggested basic drawing submissions. Students should draw from observation whenever possible.
