It time for Portfolio Days again! National Portfolio Day is an invaluable opportunity to get some feedback from us about all the hard work you’ve been putting into your artwork. These events that range in from a sizable gathering to a huge spectacle. The Admissions staff attends many of these all over the country. We also enlist the help and expertise of chosen alums to give you some insight into your work.
I was in San Diego last Sunday helming the RISD tables. We had some great alums on hand and we met many of the young artists of the Southern California area. I had a chance to snap a few pictures of the excitement.
We can give you pointers on what your strong pieces are and what you should work on. This is a great jump into figuring out what to include and what to leave out. The excitement and high energy level at Portfolio Day is worth the trip, and we look forward to meeting all of you who are interested in applying to RISD.
Find a Portfolio Day that RISD will be at here.
There are more Portfolio Days then there are of us, so we can’t make it to every one. Don’t let this stop you! There is plenty of good advice to find at Portfolio Day and you can use the many opinions on your work to steer you in the right direction.
