What's National Portfolio Day?

National Portfolio Day is an annual event, held in multiple locations across the United States and Canada, produced specifically for emerging visual artists and designers. It is an opportunity for those who wish to pursue an education in art and design to meet one on one with professional representatives from colleges and universities who are accredited. The event is a unique opportunity to meet individually with professionals who can provide valuable feedback and guidance on your portfolio of work (i.e.: artwork, sketches, designs and creative materials) additionally, you will have the chance to discuss the specific school’s programs and get answers to questions about professional careers in art and design. High school students, parents, teachers, guidance counselors and college transfer students are encouraged to attend. National Portfolio Day serves a variety of purposes. Most importantly, it is designed to help further the artistic development of young artists and designers by bringing together experienced post-secondary representatives to review student portfolio materials and offer feedback and guidance.
