Portfolio Day Is All About You: The Student With The Portfolio
Portfolio Day gives Arkansas high school students interested in pursuing an art-related post-secondary education the opportunity to meet with representatives from colleges and universities with art programs throughout the state and region.
There is no registration! Just show up with your portfolio.
Students should bring 10 to 15 pieces of their best work (photos or larger pieces) and be prepared to discuss their techniques, media choices and creative processes.
Students are encouraged to visit with as many representatives as they choose to learn about their art programs and available scholarships.
Some colleges and universities have been known to give out on-the-spot scholarships for stellar portfolios!
