Please bring your portfolio to campus for review. This portfolio should consist of at least 10 works completed during your high school years. The majority should be completed during the junior and senior years. Original work is preferable when possible, but a digital portfolio is acceptable. In the case of a digital portfolio, quality reproductions are essential. During your visit, you will discuss the portfolio in an interview with Art Department faculty. In addition, candidates will be required to do a short still-life drawing exercise. To be named a Fine Arts Scholarship winner in Visual Art, the Art Department will be looking for serious art students who demonstrate a commitment to sustained creative production.
Please send 15 pages of your best work in poetry, fiction, and/or playwriting. Include with your creative work a 1-2 page reflection on the sources of your inspiration as a writer and what you strive to achieve with your creative writing. Your material must be received with your registration for the Fine Arts Celebration. All material should be typed and double-spaced. Candidates will discuss their work in an interview with a professor as part of the review process.
Candidates for a music audition should be prepared to perform two or three accompanied movements or pieces in contrasting styles that have been prepared for accompanied solo performance in advance with a music instructor (pianists, percussionists, and guitarists need no accompanist). Vocalists must also prepare at least one piece that is not in English. For voice and single-line instruments it is assumed that you will bring your own accompanist to the audition. The Music Department can provide an accompanist for you, but at the time you submit your registration for the Fine Arts Celebration, you must immediately call or email the music professor listed below to request an accompanist, and to arrange to email copies of your music well in advance of your audition. Candidates will interview with a member of the Music Department faculty as part of the audition.
Candidates should be prepared to work with Theater Department faculty in an informal workshop setting focused on the acting process. Students interested in design and/or technical theater should bring a portfolio with evidence of previous work (production photos, sketches, renderings, light plots, etc.). Students interested in film should bring a DVD of an original short film or selected clips from original film projects. Candidates will be interviewed by members of the Theater Department faculty.
Candidates with any questions or concerns regarding the application process are encouraged to contact the following professors:
