National Portfolio Days are events specifically for visual artists, designers, and architects. They provide opportunities for those who wish to pursue an education in the visual arts and architecture to meet with representatives from colleges accredited by the National Association of Schools of Art and Design. Representatives will be available to review your artwork, discuss their programs, and answer questions about professional careers in art and design. High school students, parents, teachers, guidance counselors, and college transfer students are encouraged to attend. Students interested in studying architecture are welcome to attend and do not need a portfolio in order to have a valuable experience.
* Please note that NASAD only reviews curricular programs in the visual arts and design. For more information about specific majors please contact the college directly.
All Portfolio Day events are free, open to the public and do not require pre-registration.
