Step 3. Once you’ve applied you will be sent a link to an online portfolio review site called Slideroom. Please upload your portfolio and resumé after reading the instructions on Slideroom. Ensure your scans or digital photographs are good representations of your work, ie. Clear with good contrast, crop to include art only.

Step 4. Portfolio Deadline and Orientation Session

You will be invited to submit your portfolio and onsite drawing test at a session anytime between January to March. If you applied before the deadline your application will be considered before anyone who applies after the deadline.
