Do I have to take an art class to make a portfolio?

I'm currently a junior in high school, I've never taken art in high school, but I draw on my own. I'm planning on applying to Syracuse for the school of Architecture but I'm not sure if they'll even consider me (since I've never taken art). Im currently taking Pre-Cal and I'm going to take Calculus AP next year, would it be better if I take Art 1 as a Senior? Or would it be a bit too late?
My scores are 1070 on the new SAT(going to retake it in June, also taking an online course for study)
And a 22 on the ACT(same plans as ACT)
I'm in the top 6% of my class with a 6.086 GPA on a scale of 6. Is a portfolio a bigger deal than my academics?
