1. Application Process

2. Portfolio Requirements



Twice a year, KyCAD makes things extra-easy (and fun!) by hosting a Portfolio Review + Open House. Our next such event takes place from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. on Saturday, Sept. 30, at the 849 Gallery, right here on the KyCAD campus.

KyCAD invites you to share samples of your artwork and learn more about our Bachelor of Fine Arts programs. Enjoy refreshments, a campus tour, and the current exhibition in our gallery. Learn more
