New York

Prospective student tours + events

Sunday, Nov 12, 2017 - 12:00 PM - 4:00 PM

New York, we're coming!

We'll be at the National Portfolio Day event in New York Sunday, November 12 from 12-4pm  at the Javits Center, 655 West 34th Street.

National Portfolio Day (NPD) is an opportunity to meet with representatives from colleges and universities accredited by the National Association of Schools of Art and Design.

NPD is:

  • an educational event for young artists/designers
  • an opportunity for critique
  • a chance to discuss your work with knowledgeable people from a variety of fine arts/design schools
  • not an examination or competition

What should I bring?

  • finished pieces, works in-progress and sketchbooks
  • original work is preferred whenever possible
  • your work as it is, no matting or framing required
  • for digital work, please bring a fully-charged viewing device (laptop, tablet)
  • a sample of your best, not everything you've ever done

Representatives from Emily Carr University (and others), will be conducting portfolio reviews between 12-4pm. High school students, parents, teachers, guidance counselors and college/university transfer students are encouraged to attend.

This is a free event, no appointment necessary.
