I’m really interested in going into visual arts education and I saw that to be accepted into the program you have to submit a portfolio of original artwork. Does anyone know how competitive this program is?
I don’t know how competitive the Ball State program is but most schools require a portfolio showing observational drawing so that they can assess your skill level. You may want to contact the school/department directly and ask for any information they can offer you. Most times, they are very forthcoming with information about their programs.
