National Portfolio Day 2017

What is National Portfolio Day: Thinking about going to college for art? National Portfolio Day is a great way to find out your options! National Portfolio Days serve a variety of purposes.  Most importantly, they help further the development of young artists by bringing together experienced college representatives to review artwork, and offer critique. You’ll hear many different opinions about your portfolio in one place who share a powerful commitment to the arts. This experience is a small taste of what attending a professional art program can be like. To find out more about National Portfolio Day, please visit the National Portfolio Day web site.

What to Bring: Please bring finished pieces, work in progress, and sketchbooks. We ask you to bring your original artwork whenever possible. We suggest that you do not spend time and money matting or framing your work. If you would like to show some work digitally, please bring your own laptop with a self-contained power source as there will not be computers or outlets at each representative’s table.
