  1. Hey! I love paintings, designing an art and clothes and drawing a anime. But I’m not into sketches. Do I deserve this course. But I’m not sure if I’m accepted in this course because I can’t sketch. Am I still acceptable in this course even though I can’t sketch?

  2. I’m not really good in drawing and sketching but I know I want to learn more about it and art itself. Is it advisable for me to take this is as a college course?

    • Hi, Joyce!

      Thanks for visiting our site.

      The official policies and standards for BFA released by CHED only requires the inclusion of two Mathematics subjects. Our acquaintances who are FA graduates only had 2 (trigonometry and algebra) as well. We’re not too sure if that varies per school, though.
