What's Hangover Awareness Day??
National Hang-over Awareness Day, which is the 7th of February
National Portfolio Day?
During my senior year in high school I went to National Portfolio Day in Boston MA, at Massachusetts College of Art. It was pretty useful, they give you feedback on which pieces are your strongest and areas you need to work on.
Tons and tons of college reps were there. Including RISD, Monserret, Parsons, Pratt, etc..
I would recommend bringing as many pieces as you can, I brought gosh about 20 but of those I had 10 seperated incase the rep only wanted to see a select view. I also brought a piece I was working on and they seemed to really appreciate seeing some work process.
It's a great experience and great critique, I had one rep that actually accepted me to their school on the spot (as long as I wasn't failing all my classes). One bit of advice though, primarily this is to get feedback on your artwork. That being said, it's great to talk to reps from RISD but the line is half the people there. What I did was I went to the small lines for the smaller schools where the reps were still refreshed genuinely there to give you solid feedback. I got advice from I think 10 different schools this way! However I made sure to stop by the 3 schools I was seriously considering.
goodluck its lots of fun!
