Can I list art as an extracurricular activity on my college application?

Hi! I'm a junior who loves creating art in my spare time. It's a pretty important hobby of mine, and I'm curious if I can list it as an extracurricular activity on my college application. Thoughts?

Hi there!

Absolutely, you can list art as an extracurricular activity on your college application. Colleges appreciate well-rounded applicants and are interested in learning about your passions and interests outside of academics. If art is something significant to you, it's essential to include it in your application.

You may want to provide details about your art experiences, such as the specific forms of art you create (painting, drawing, sculpture, etc.), any exhibits or shows in which you've participated, or workshops and classes you've attended. Don't underestimate the importance of showcasing your personal interests and how they've shaped your growth as an individual.

Best of luck with your college applications! Keep pursuing your passion for art.
