Portfolio Redefined is for all high school students who are preparing an art and design portfolio for college admission as well as members of their families who would like to learn more about art degrees and college readiness.
Join Parsons, Museum of Arts and Design and the Joan Mitchell Foundation for a portfolio development day on October 11, 2014 that is devoted to workshopping ideas and practices for building a competitive portfolio for college admission. The day includes hands-on “how to sessions” on documenting work and writing for portfolio submissions and finding inspiration to kick-start your portfolio. Arts professionals and students from art and design colleges will share projects and give guidance to students on how to best present themselves to the school of their choice.
A breakfast snack, a bag lunch and an afternoon snack will be provided for students and family members at the event.
Workshops will include:
- Portfolio strategies from artists and students
- Best practices for digital documentation
- Artist statement writing
- Group portfolio reviews (bring a sampling of your artwork to share)
