The Statement is your PROFESSIONAL STATEMENT, think of it as the Artist’s Statement, with the focus on getting a job, presenting your strengths, turning your weaknesses into strengths, and letting us know who inspires you in your work. You CANNOT write this before having your portfolio categorized, it MUST refer to the works you are presenting. The BIO is a 1 paragraph short description of who you are. The CV is your RESUME: you can start working on this one now, and you can upload a PDF file, as well as a READABLE SCREEN SHOT of it in case the PDF doesn’t work. MAXIMUM ONE PAGE, more than 1 page is not a good idea…
Select for each one of the portfolio areas representative examples of your work ( min 3, max 5 in each category ) and if you have more in one category than another make sure you explain why. For each project you are going to provide the following information: (SOME EXAMPLES) TITLE: My yellow aura MEDIA: Digital Illustration SOFTWARE: Adobe Illustrator SPECIFICATIONS: 800X600px, RGB, 72DPI CLASS: ART 207 Digital Illustration PROFESSOR: Doug Sutherland SEMESTER / TERM: SP 15 INSTITUTION: University of Tampa LINK: if you have it posted on another blog, create a link to the page where you published it originally.

After this you can give us a short general feedback on the class and what you learned, so we can benefit from your comments, besides your actual projects, to see how can we improve the courses we offer and will offer in the future. NB: We are not looking for EXCELLENCE! It is totally normal to see that you started as beginners and you are moving forward in a professional path. Show us that contrast, let us see how you have progressed and improved in your comments, and in the works you have selected. I suggest you group the projects and list them chronologically, from the newest project to the oldest, so we can see your evolution, and provide some meaningful feedback. If you have the progression of one specific project, upload up to three images that show us how that project grew in time, but have in mind that the three images will count as one project at the end. You could also create a collage of images that will allow us to see the evolution in one image. If you think that it is important, you can do the same process for 3D animations / Animations / Videos / Audio Clips, by posting screen shots of the way you created them in each application. Remember MAXIMUM 3 (three) evolution process images, per project, ONLY if you consider it is going to enhance our perception of that project. Please make sure you upload good quality images to your sites, but have in mind that we will examine your works on computer screens over the web, so please OPTIMIZE the files you are uploading: Make sure your JPG photos are no bigger than 1200px on any side at 72DPI (this is not printed media, and at the end your portfolio will be archived electronically). All videos should be housed on YouTube or Vimeo, so make sure you provide the full link to the project, and EMBED the videos on your site, as well as provide THREE (3) screen grabs of your project (select the 3 best frames of your videos, optimize them and post them) We are giving you sufficient time to upload your projects, we want to make sure they will be uploaded and ready to be presented by MIDNIGHT, OF A SPECIFIED DATE TOWARDS THE END OF THE SEMESTER, BEFORE EXAMS WEEK. We will agree on the date together as a group We will review your sites with sufficient time and meet collectively to provide correct feedback. The meeting with the faculty will be announced once all your sites are ready to be presented, it will surely happen before exams week. STATEMENTS 28 tips to write an artist statement Quotes by famous artists Please review every single one of your posts on your site, in each category. Try to use a critical eye when looking at your works and in 4 paragraphs you will tell us the following: Header: your name, major, current semester and expected graduating semester, the URL of your sites (this does not count as a paragraph) • What are your weaknesses (areas where you feel you need more training and what has prevented you from getting that training) • What are your strengths (be authentic about your own work) • What aspects of your education brought you to the level where you are right now (which classes and professors gave you the best formation or the best tools to realize where you are right now) • Where do you see yourselves after you graduate and what do you expect to get out of your majors to be where you want to be in the future. Stick to ONE PARAGRAPH MAXIMUM per subject, please! And do not copy/paste the questions: Integrate the questions into your answers, make it sound like paragraphs that are actually connected. We need your honest opinion to make sure the FMX department and our programs go in the right direction. This is a self-evaluation, not a predetermined set of answers and cliches that won’t help anyone grow. Shortly after we receive those statements, we will determine meeting times for our personal feedback, these could happen as a Google Hangouts or Skype video conferences if necessary. IMPORTANT Whether this is class is graded or with a PASS or FAIL status, it does not mean that plagiarism will not be sanctioned: we expect you to present your OWN personal work, without a hint of plagiarism. This is your chance to shine as individuals, prove it and DO NOT PLAGIARIZE. The Integrity Policies are a general guideline for all classes. Regarding attendance: we will agree on meeting times, and after those meeting times have been agreed upon, you WILL BE EXPECTED to show up or these will count as absences! Our time is equally as precious as yours! We reserve the right to modify this syllabus for any reason at any time.
