APPLICATION PORTFOLIO: DEADLINE MARCH 23, 2015

Please note that applications will not be accepted unless they have been preceded by a nomination letter from the Department Chair of the applicant’s home institution or their designee. The nomination must be submitted on the school letterhead and received by 16 March 2015.

The portfolio should include all of the following packaged and mailed together:

1. The application form which is forwarded to the Department Chair for distribution to nominated candidates.

2. A brief statement of objectives (do not include a separate artist’s statement).

3. Two confidential letters of recommendation in sealed envelopes attesting to the applicant’s maturity and ability to function within the stated aims of the program. One of these should be from a studio instructor with whom you are currently studying and the other should be from a studio instructor with whom you have studied in the past two years. Use the reference forms which are forwarded to the Department Chair for distribution to nominated candidates. It is preferred that references be included with your application materials in sealed envelopes.

4. An official transcript of grades submitted in a sealed envelope.

5. Examples of work in digital format. No more than 20 images uploaded to our Server in Mac OS format. We look for a cohesive body of work, but we also understand and expect that a young artist should be searching, pushing and trying things. Therefore send 20 images of your best work. Do not submit works in different media just to prove that you have tried things, but only send images from different mediums if you are actually engaged in them and are interested in doing such as painting, drawing, printmaking, sculpture, mixed media, digital photography, video etc. Digital files must be uploaded to our Server (follow directions below). The work uploaded must be in a folder named with this convention: LastnameFirstname, e.g. DoeJane. Do not submit more than 20 images. Still images can be no larger than 5 megabytes each, and must be RGB color in JPEG format. Name and number all files LastnameFirstname00.jpg, e.g. DoeJane13.jpg. Do not use any presentation format, e.g. Power-Point or PDF File format for videos and moving images

If you wish to include a video, all videos must be formatted in QuickTime. Video files should be no longer than two minutes in length. Please note that videos are considered as part of your selection of twenty files, not as additional material. Do not include titles or credits within the video files. Group any video at the end of the group of still images. Videos and moving images must be named following this convention: LastnameFirstinitialVideoTwodigits(Date).mov [e.g., StorrRVideo15(2008).mov.

YALE SUMMER SCHOOL OF ART AND MUSIC

NORFOLK, CONNECTICUT

May 24–July 5, 2015

The art division offers a six-week session for academic credit as a special summer program. The School is located on the Stoeckel estate and is supported by the Ellen Battell Stoeckel Trust.

Through the generosity of this trust, the full expenses of tuition, room, and board are covered by a fellowship grant to each student approved for admission. Selected colleges, universities, and professional art schools across the country and abroad are invited to nominate for these fellowships two candidates who are currently enrolled as juniors in their programs. There is an application fee of $25 and a registration fee of $1,500.

Students in art follow a required program of painting, printmaking, drawing, and digital photography.

Distinguished artists are on both the resident and the visiting faculty. The visiting faculty provide workshops, lectures, and individual criticism. The resident faculty for 2015 includes: Colleen Asper, Sarah Anne Johnson, Martin Kersels, Sam Messer, and Didier William. Visiting artists and lecturers will include: Anoka Faruqee, Jonathan Safran Foer, Robert Hobbs, Rachel Rose, and Robert Storr.

Information about the program may be obtained in late January from the schools that have been invited to participate. The application deadline is in March. Persons interested in being considered for nomination should so inform their department heads. Individuals may not apply directly to the Norfolk program.
