Portfolio Day


Joslyn's Portfolio Day: Saturday, November 12; 10:30 am-3:30 pm (doors open at 10 am)

Portfolio Day takes two popular Joslyn events and rolls them into one full day of panel discussions, critiques, and workshops designed to prepare students interested in pursuing creative academics and/or professions.

This is a FREE event that will introduce students to college professors and creative professionals in order to gain insight to the choices and experiences that can prepare oneself for a creative field

Portfolio Panel: 10:30-noon
A moderated panel discussion with student and faculty representatives from five different art departments will provide insight from both sides of the portfolio review process to better prepare students building a visual arts portfolio.

Panelists will include represenatives from
Creighton University

Nebraska Wesleyan University
Metropolitan Community College

Portfolio Critiques: 12:30-2:30 pm
Bring your portfolio! When you arrive in the morning, schedule a time to have your current portfolio reviewed by Portfolio Panelists and current university art students.

Photography Workshop: 1-2 pm & 1:30-2:30 pm
