VPA Visual Art Auditions

The audition is timed and consists of two drawings.

Drawing #1: 40 minutes. The student will set up a still life consisting of 3 or 4 objects which vary in their shapes and heights. They will be nestled close together so there is overlap. This is a monochromatic value study using sketchbook drawing paper and only graphite pencil to arrange forms in space, shading values light to dark. Do not smudge.

Drawing #2: 40 minutes. The student may use whatever media is available to create a conceptual drawing. Preferably in color, the drawing should be a thoughtful fantasy of recognizable forms from toys, animals or ideas with considerations for composition and design.

These two drawings should be submitted along with the 10 portfolio pieces designating them as timed audition #1 and #2.
