National Portfolio Days
National Portfolio Days in Your Area
National Portfolio Days are scheduled through the United States and Canada at various art schools and colleges. Click here for a complete list of National Portfolio Day events. Pratt does not attend all of them.
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.
Our Portfolio Review Form is found at the top 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.
The New York National Portfolio Day is Sunday, November 17, 2013 from 12:00 pm - 4:00 pm at the Jacob K. Javitz Convention Center located at 655 W. 34th Street, New York, NY.
