    How difficult is it to get into art school?

    I'm thinking ahead for my 7th grader who wants to go to art school at a University when she graduates from high school. Is art school super-selective and difficult to get into?

    It depends. She would need to have created a lot of art and put together an impressive portfolio, better sooner than later. Its also good to say that you've sold more art, or been in a gallery, and anything like that- anything to make a name for herself. And with any other school, she should have a little job experience, maybe some volunteer work, and extracurriculars. Good grades aren't bad either smile In the end, the school board or whoever picks students will need to decide if she has talent or at least the potential to become a great artist.
