National Portfolio Day
Saturday, November 23, 2013
10 a.m.–2 p.m.
If you are interested in studying art and/or design at the college level, you should attend Portfolio Day. This educational event for young artists brings together students and experienced college representatives who review artwork, offer critique, discuss college plans, and share information about their schools.
Portfolio Day is not an examination or a competition. The reviewers look forward to seeing your work and providing you with helpful information for this next important step in your education. A portfolio review usually takes approximately 15 minutes.
Participation will give you a taste of what it would be like to attend a professional art program. Keep in mind you may hear many different opinions about your work. This is your chance to explain your thought process and show us where you want to go with your work.
What to Bring
Please bring original artwork when possible (15 to 20 pieces is fine.) These could include your sketch books, works in progress and what you consider your best finished pieces. If your work is large, three-dimensional or otherwise hard to carry, you can bring photographs of the work instead. You may bring your own laptop if you wish, but we will not have laptops available on which to view images online or stored on a flash drive.
A list of participating schools will be provided when colleges have completed the registration process. Please check back for details.
