About Us

ARTriculate was founded to specifically guide creative students in their application to study art in college and in most cases receive a BFA. While there are a multitude of advisers for applicants to traditional colleges and universities, there are few admissions counselors specifically focused on art schools to help navigate the more complicated process of creating a portfolio and applying for scholarships. ARTriculate is a niche admissions counseling service focused just on the art student.
