Today marks the discovery of both Newfoundland in 1497 by John Cabot and gold that paved way for the Klondike Gold Rush in 1896. Discovery Day is celebrated in Yukon and Newfoundland and Labrador, Canada, but we’d also want to celebrate it our own way by asking you these questions:
Are you a high school student with a passion for the arts?
Do you want to become an artist someday?
Are you willing to study arts in college and build your way up from there?
Despite your burning desire for art and design, do you feel you’re not realizing your full potential as an artist?
If your answer to all the questions is a resounding “YES,” then we really need to talk.
The journey towards becoming an artist is no walk in the park. First you’ll have to studying art in college, which is in itself a struggle of epic proportions. I’m pretty sure you’ve heard of the horror stories that art students undergo: the sleepless nights, the cups of coffee in the middle of the night just to keep you awake, loss of social life, and scathing remarks from professors are just the tip of the iceberg.
Once you graduate, the hardships only get much more difficult. Making a living out of your art can be ruthless and will require you to take multiple jobs in order to support your passion and make your art dreams come true.
However, the key here is passion. If you really feel strongly about art and want to succeed as an artist, then you’ll do everything under your power to make it happen. With enough passion, you can break through your glass ceiling and become the artist you are meant to become!
Therefore, consider today as your personal Discovery Day. Just as John Cabot found something really groundbreaking that changed the landscape of Canadian history, take this opportunity to break new ground as an aspiring artist!
Great! Now, what should I do?
Before you can be an artist, you need to ensure your spot at an art or design program in college. And you can do this by unlocking your artistic skills and turning in a winning art portfolio as part of your application.
You can achieve both by hiring “The Admission Insider” Karen Kesteloot for her coaching services!
As an art instructor for more than 16 years, Karen has worked as a portfolio reviewer in the Illustration program at Sheridan College. She saw that applicants had good ideas in their portfolio but fail to communicate and turn them into effective artworks.
In order to help students increase their chances of getting into the competitive arts program in college, Karen set up PortPrep. This company aims to help students fix their technique and optimize their art portfolio to increase their chances of getting into college.
As of writing, she has a 100% acceptance rate. This means that all her students have gotten into their choice of art or design program in college!
