Who Should Attend?
Portfolio Day is geared for juniors and seniors, however all art students are welcome to attend. Students will have the opportunity to meet one-on-one with faculty from participating colleges, present their work, and receive valuable feedback on his/her portfolio. Students MUST come prepared to truly benefit from this experience. In addition to Villa Maria College art faculty, we are expecting art faculty from at least 10 colleges. High school groups are allotted 3 hours to meet with the different college representatives.
What Should Students Bring?
Student artists should bring sketch books, paintings, drawings, illustrations, 3-D designs, graphic work, or other art pieces. Portfolios should include 5-12 pieces of work that represent a breadth of artistic talent, including different mediums if possible. Portfolio pieces can represent classroom assignments as well as independent work.
All participants will be provided with two (2’x6’) tables, two chairs, lunch, and refreshments. Please bring your own extension cord and indicate if you need to be placed close to an electrical outlet. College participants will need to send a registration fee of $150.00 no later than October 13, 2017.
