Visual Art Submission Details

If you are accomplished in visual art you may include additional supplements with your application through SlideRoom.

You may submit:

  • 15 images (up to 5 MB each)
  • Accepted image formats include .jpg, .gif, or .png

A $10 non-refundable processing fee is also required at the time of submission. If you have a Common Application fee waiver, the SlideRoom fee will automatically be waived. Fee waivers can also be requested by emailing admission@brown.edu prior to submitting your SlideRoom portfolio. QuestBridge applicants submitting an art portfolio should use the QuestBridge visual art program in SlideRoom.

Submit via SlideRoom

Students uploading a visual art submission should note the following:

  • Portfolios should be a strong supplement to your application, thoughtfully conceived and demonstrating above-average visual art talent.
  • Class assignments, as well as work produced outside the classroom indicating your personal area of interest, are encouraged.
  • If photographs are included, they are expected to go beyond hobbyist photography such as vacation snapshots or casually conceived images, and should include a variety of artistically sound content. 
  • A short statement about your interest in art may be included as well.
