National Portfolio Days in Your Area

National Portfolio Days are scheduled throughout the United States and Canada at various art schools and colleges. Pratt attends most but not all.  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 locations and times are listed on the NPD website.  Reservations are not required for NPDs.

Portfolio days are specifically for prospective freshman and transfer students to receive feedback on visual portfolios. Please bring 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. If you wish your digital work to be viewed, bring your own laptop as well as an additional battery as most colleges will not have access to an electrical outlet or laptop.

Pratt's Portfolio Review Form is found at the bottom of this page in pdf format. We encourage you to download it, print, and complete it and bring it with you if you wish to have Pratt review your work. It will save you time at the event itself.  A PDF of the national and regional portfolio day schedule is also available at the bottom of this page.
