Portfolio Redefined 2015, October 10

On Saturday, October 10, 2015 the Parsons Scholars Senior group along with other New York City senior high school students attended Portfolio Redefined Workshop held by Joan Mitchell Foundation and the Parsons Scholars Program.

Portfolio Redefined is a workshop for all aspiring students who are preparing an art and design portfolio for college admission. During the workshop all students got their portfolios reviewed by admissions counselors from different art colleges. The counselors provided them with feedback to make their portfolios stronger before they applied to the schools they wanted to attend. The students were also able to have their art pieces professionally photographed and put into a digital file for them to take with them. Portfolio Redefined workshops happen a few times a year and are a great event for students to prepare themselves for their application.
