Portfolio Submission Process

Art Class

Hampton Friends of the Arts, Inc. is working with Hampton County School District and other community partners to identify Artistically Gifted & Talented students in Visual Art, Music, Dance, & Theater, aged 13 & up for enrichment opportunities. These opportunities will include dedicated afterschool programming, workshops with artists-in-residence, and more. Public school students will be identified through an in-school process. If you do not attend public school (private school, homeschooled, etc.) we invite you to submit a portfolio. Please see the process for each Arts discipline below,

Visual Arts: Portfolio Components
1. Collage: create a collage that clearly represents something you have read or
learned in school.
● A collage is a two-dimensional composition made of different materials attached to a surface. Use cut out text (words) and images in your collage; do not simply draw a variety of images on the page.
● Write three sentences about how your collage represents a topic you’re interested in. Please do not write more than three sentences.
2. Pencil Drawing: create one drawing of three views of the same cup or mug using a No. 2 pencil (no colored pencils).
● The cup/mug should be drawn from observation. 

● Photograph both artworks. Email them to HamptonArtShow@gmail.com. In the body of the email

include your name, address, age, grade in school, school of attendance, and the three sentence statement about your collage.
