What is National Portfolio Day?
National Portfolio Days are educational events for young artists held at host colleges throughout the U.S. and Canada. Portfolio Days bring together students and experienced college representatives, who review artwork, offer critique, discuss college plans, and share information about their schools. These events are not an examination or a competition. The art college representatives are interested in your development, look forward to reviewing your work, and will provide you with helpful information for this next important step in your education. We urge you to use your time at Portfolio Day to discuss your work with as many representatives as possible.
