On Saturday, November 14th, Parsons Scholars attended National Portfolio Day– hosted by Pratt this year. This event is an opportunity for students interested in pursuing an education in the visual arts and design to meet with representatives from colleges accredited by the National Association of Schools of Art and Design.
Representatives from each school are available to review students’ artwork, discuss their programs and answer questions about professional careers in art.
Students gain invaluable input from college reps regarding the portfolio portion of their college applications.
Senior scholars in attendance will build on feedback from their particular schools of interest before officially submitting their portfolios, while junior scholars are given the opportunity to have their work reviewed a year in advance while exploring different program options in order to be prepared for the upcoming application process.
