JOIN US FOR NATIONAL PORTFOLIO DAY!
Have you heard about National Portfolio Day? It’s a great opportunity for you to meet individually with representatives from art schools and receive valuable feedback on your portfolio.
This year, National Portfolio Day is all online. That means that you can get a portfolio review from VCUarts without having to leave home! (And, as always, National Portfolio Day is free and open to the public.) Even though National Portfolio Day is online this year, it’ll be (just about) the same as always. Our representatives can review your artwork and share information on art programs, admissions, financial aid and scholarships.
Tips for a Successful National Portfolio Day Experience
Assemble your portfolio. Select up to 15 items of the visual artwork you’re most proud of. It can be completed work, works in progress, sketchbooks–it’s up to you. As National Portfolio Day is online this year, we suggest that you scan your 2D items and take pictures of your 3D items and be prepared to share these files during your online meeting. (If you don’t have a portfolio, don’t worry. You’re still welcome to attend National Portfolio Day, and we’d love to chat with you about VCUarts and set up an appointment for a portfolio review on another day.)
Meet with representatives as many school representatives as possible. Everyone will give you a slightly different critique, and this will help you grow as an artist.
Have a reliable Internet connection.
Most importantly, have fun! This is a great chance for you to meet with professional artists and representatives from dozens of art schools. They’re as excited to talk to you about art as you are to meet with them!
We can’t wait to meet with you! Click here to register for Virtual National Portfolio Day.
