National Portfolio Days in Your Area

NOTE: All fall 2020 and winter 2021 National Portfolio Days will be virtual. 

National Portfolio Days are scheduled throughout the United States and Canada at various art schools and colleges. Pratt also attends several regional portfolio days. The schedule of portfolio days that Pratt attends is below. Visit the National Portfolio Day (NPD) website. Event times are listed on the NPD website.


Portfolio days are specifically for prospective freshman and transfer students to receive feedback on visual portfolios. Please plan to show 12 to 20 pieces of original work including sketchpads if available. You may bring work in any medium including clothing, jewelry and sculpture if you can carry it. Most schools will ask to see work from observation, so make sure you bring enough of a selection. 

Pratt's Portfolio Review Form is found at the bottom of this page in pdf format. Please fill it out and send to admissions@pratt.edu prior to your portfolio review with Pratt. And make sure to sign the bottom of the form so that we can start a special file for you.
