My Future Bobaa
Arising Artist; Kimberly Howard
*As a foot note, I've thought also about going out of state for college due to parental influence, despite not really having a desire to leave Virginia, but my best bet is that if I leave Virginia, I might as well end up in a high end state, most likely New York. The college there that I have tons about through my current art magnet school (Governor's School For the Arts) is Remi(UGH idefk), which previously had free tuition till recent, but it's been an option, but for the sake of an undecided mind I'll just use VCU.
Admission Requirements (What must be Submitted)
VCU requires that freshman students below the age of 22 submit SAT and ACT scores as part of their application. Also required is an up to date high school transcript, while GED holders must submit their GED scores. Something they commonly ask for is your social security number.
For the portfolio portion; it is required to submit 12 to 16 works that have been created within a prior 2 year to the present, and nothing older.
Everything is encourages to be sent digitally so knowing how to professional take photos of your work would be great (Cheers for learning!)
I would expect that they would want to know that the student has experience, and as for leadership and other activities, it doesn't focus on those two things primarily, not even a subtle mention.I could assume that they would think the higher the GPA, the better, but since I would impose that they are looking for talent and experience, whoever looks like they have the best work would be great, but that's only an inference.

Income and Tutition
Income for a job like being an artist isn't easy or something you can find a standard deviation of. It mostly depends on your sales person skill and social skill. Some artists could make no income for the art they make and some could sell out pieces for millions. It all depends on how your name is branded.
*As a foot note, over the years it's noticed that most of the time an artist's older work previous to their fame is more expensive than the art they makes a grow closer to possible fame. As it's always said, an artist's name makes art worth more.
As a painter you can't really be much besides an artist. It's a pretty generic based topic without much wiggle room. I feel like it would be nice to double dip into both
Stats wise, I wouldn't really want to look into right now, considering that I don't even know what people will be looking for in an artist in the future. Whatever job opportunity arises comes along, I guess.

The only out-of-state school I applied to was VCUarts because of its reputation, it’s part of a major university, and it has the lowest tuition costs of all the top art schools.

I really don't want to turn out to be a poor artist, but I can't really guarantee anything, and that's what really scares me considering that creating art is a passion and I want to succeed but the chances... :')
