Meeting about getting ready for post-secondary art schools….

Portfolio / Post-Secondary Art School Info Night

I invite parents to join me on Monday October 29th at 7pm in the ESA library to discuss what goes into visual arts, design, architecture, and fashion post-secondary school applications and portfolios.

I would like to discuss how parents can help navigate the difficult and laborious process our grade 12’s will undertake during the portfolio and application process. I will discuss strategies for organising the portfolio/application process in order to secure the best possible scholarship opportunities.

We can review examples of portfolios and discuss strategies for securing funding and increasing initial scholarship offers. At this point we have 50 schools from eight countries scheduled in the 2012 2013 year to speak with/review our grade 12’s work. Portfolio Day 2012 is shaping up to be our most successful so far.
In order to establish clarity around potential, possibilities and best practices it would be wonderful to have you attend.

All are welcome, including parents of students in grades 9-11. A significant number of non-visual arts students go on to art-based post-secondary programs and I want to make myself available to parents of students in the other majors with children who may want to pursue such paths. This meeting will be applicable to film and photography students, and students interested in architecture, fashion, and design. Bring you questions!

See you at 6.55pm on Monday October 29th!
