On Saturday, November 5th the Junior Scholars had their eyes opened to a larger perspective of things - critics. To be more exact, National Portfolio Day. Scholars immediately compared this to the College Fair, but they were soon brought to light by Morgan Ersey (of Parsons Admissions) to the key points and tips of National Portfolio Day.
The Junior Scholars were informed on how their portfolios should be put together, how it should be organized, and more importantly how to get information and constructive feedback from the schools' representatives.

On Sunday, November 13th, the scholars attended the annual National Portfolio Day. The top art and design schools were in attendance along with their prospective students. The art schools that the scholars really wanted to see included Pratt, SUNY Purchase, FIT, SVA, and of course, Parsons. The students were able to get some positive feedback on their work as well as advice and tips to strengthen their portfolios so that the next time around, their portfolios will be stronger then ever.
