The portfolio review is an integral part of the admission process at the Jindal School of Art and Architecture. We review your portfolio to assess the following:

Your ability to (re)present and Describe

this could be in form of sketches, paintings, drawings, photographs, videos, audio. What the assessment shall check is your ability to work with multiple media – mastery is not what we expect; innovative use of multiple media is appreciated and so is the ability to work with different media and how well you describe the things through representation.

Your Ability to Make and understand how things are Made:

We will assess your portfolio to see how much you are interested in making things as well as understanding how they are made. Making could be in any form, it could be a basket you have made, a thing that you have fixed around the house, a system that you have made, or even a recipe that you have prepared. We would like to see it as part of your portfolio. Document it, the thing you have made as well as your process of making it. Any form of documentation is allowed, it could be a video, a Do-it-yourself (DIY) video or drawings, or any other media you choose. The Process of making is what we want to see.

Your Ability to craft narratives, tell stories using multiple media:

We will assess your ability to craft stories, narratives, to include your voice along with others. This story could again be in any media, it could be all textual, audio-video, pictorial, just voice – all media are welcome. What we want to see, and judge, is your ability to describe things and tell wonderful stories.
