Applicants to Drama Design must demonstrate a basic proficiency in drawing, painting and design via a portfolio review. The portfolio should include about 15 items of work in several art media and techniques. Not all samples of work have to pertain to theatre. The portfolio review will also include a short interview, where we will get a sense of your drive, aptitude for design and fit for this rigorous program.
