Statement of Intent Guidelines
Your Statement of Intent should be 300-500 words.In the first paragraph or the title, indicate what area you are applying to (Painting, Drawing, Photography, Visual Communication Design, 3D Studies, Multimedia Arts, Art Education).The statement should demonstrate focus and direction. You should demonstrate a sense of what you want from the BFA program, and what you’re prepared to put into it. It should be both articulate and conceptual, and discuss the conceptual framework of your art, the ideas that tie the body of work represented in the portfolio together. Also focus on where you are going, what drives you. Special consideration is given to students who are passionate about their creative pursuits.The Statement of Intent should demonstrate your focus and eagerness to learn and develop your artistic skills and voice. What ideas motivate and drive your artwork; what concepts are you working with? Express what you know about your discipline—and be aware that you are talking to intelligent and articulate people who are engaged in the field. Speak to your own strengths without an arrogant or condescending attitude. The relationship between what you write and what you show in your portfolio will demonstrate how you place yourself in the art world. We expect our students to have a strong background both in studio techniques, and what is going on and has gone on in the art world.
