Open House and Portfolio Days

Pulse Quickening? Clammy Hands? A dose of anxiety bubbling up?
Don’t worry; it’s just a portfolio review!

Seriously. It's going to be O.K. Sit down with our faculty to discuss your artwork and get your portfolio in order. We'd Love to see 6-12 different pieces, your sketchbooks and if writing is your thing bring some samples of that too. You can take a tour of our campus led by our current students and when you're done, our admissions team will be here to walk you through your application and answer any questions. (If you're wondering what to wear on your first day of art school, we'll cover that too.)
