Yup, I'll be going to the art academy next year :D
But before that I had to make sure to got accepted, which was so much harder than expected!

Really, they expect so much from you and the requirements can be really complicated and always different.
Right now when I get a 10 for a drawing I make on school (a 10 is the highest you can get here) and when I show that picture to a teacher from the art acadamy they will just tell me I have to do it over since it's ' too perfect'  no originality and everyone can do this... that counts for portrait drawings and pretty much any realistic drawing with a reference. And not to start about manga/anime, they hate it there! haha :lol:
Besides that every art acadamy says: 'It's about the procces! It might even be more important than the finished product" So that means you have a  absolutely amaizng drawing, but without any proces or deeper thpughts it won't be good enough.
In fact I'm actually nothing like that, but I tried my best to adapt myself.

So yeah, The last two weeks I had been working so hard on my portfolio. School had to suffer because I really had no time for anything, all I was doing was drawing, drawing and drawing.
But besides the portfolio the admission day was also quite scary. It took a whole day and even there you had to work on assignments. The scariest part was that there was absolutely no feedback. So I had no idea if they would like what I was doing or if they just hated it.
Also I was quite nervous for the conversation with a teacher of the art acadamy. Also because again they gave absolutely no feedback. All they did was asking questions. They didn't say anything about my work.

However, I got a a mail yesterday THAT I AM ACCEPTED! :excited:

I'm so happy because every time when I tell people I want to attend art acadamy they always tell me it will be hard to get accepted because of their high standards.  Also, I only know people who got rejected by the art acadamy but no people who got accepted... Even my teacher warned me that even when you can draw like michelangelo you will have to realise that you can be easily rejected.

But that didn't happen! :heart:

Next week I will get a reporting of my portfolio, the assignments and the conversation. I really can't wait!

Gefeliciteerd! naar welke ga je als ik vragen mag? Ik wil zelf ook naar de kunstacademie als ik klaar ben met school (duurt nog wel effetjes). Wat voor soort vragen stellen ze dan? Ik heb gehoord dat ze echt hele rare willekeurige vragen stellen :shrug:

Dankjewel! Ik ben toegelaten op St. Joost in Breda. Ik woon zelf ook bij Breda in de buurt namelijk. Maar ik heb me ook nog ingeschreven voor Utrecht en Rotterdam omdat je altijd zo veel mogelijk moet proberen aangezien je altijd afgewezen kan worden.


Nou de vragen vielen nog wel mee eigenlijk. vrij standaard vragen zoals waar je naar kijkt wanneer je een folder of poster ziet, en waarom ik voor het St. Joost wilden gaan,of ik m'n portifolio wilden toelichten en als ik één werk mocht kiezen om uit een brand te redden welke dat zou zijn en waarom haha.
De opdrachten waren meer vaag... ik ben zelf totaal niet van dat zweverige maar heb wel op dat gebied goed gescoord haha. Je werd namelijk op verschillende onderdelen beoordeeld :)

Bedankt voor de informatie! Ookal heb ik nog een jaartje, het is altijd handig om je voor te bereiden :)
St. Joost schijnt trouwens heel goed te zijn
