Admissions . National Portfolio Day 

National Portfolio Day at CIA

CIA will be hosting the Cleveland National Portfolio Day on Sunday,
October 6, 2013, from 10:00am to 2:00pm.

What is National Portfolio Day?

National Portfolio Day is your chance to explore the nation’s best colleges of art and design-all in one place. Representatives from schools around the country will gather in Cleveland to review your artwork, discuss their programs, and answer questions about creative careers.

Whether you’re in high school or transferring from another college, you’re invited to join us. We encourage parents, teachers, and guidance counselors to attend as well. No reservations are required.

At the event we urge you to discuss the work with as many representatives as possible. You’ll hear many different opinions of your work. Don’t hesitate to explain how you develop your ideas and where you want to go with them. And don’t be discouraged if you see work that you think is better than yours.

A National Portfolio Day may be the first time you have seen so many people in one place who all share your commitment to the arts. The experience is a small taste of what a professional art program can be like.

Your Portfolio

Your portfolio should include the best work you are making now; but it can also include work in progress, sketchbooks, and tear sheets, such as printed proof
of your work. Do not spend an inordinate amount of time matting or framing your work, or worrying about presentation. The work itself is what is of interest.

Whenever possible you should bring your original artwork. If you bring digital media or work that is time-based, such as video, animation, or performance, it is
your responsibility to ensure that the work can be viewed. You may choose to bring your own device (laptop, iPad, or other tablet) to show your work. Be advised however, that you will not have access to an electrical outlet.
