The Western Connecticut State University Department of Art will offer an opportunity for students interested in pursuing an education in art and design to have their works reviewed by members of the WCSU art faculty during a “Portfolio Day” event on Saturday, Dec. 1.
The event will be held from 1 to 4 p.m. in Room 145 of the Visual and Performing Arts Center on the university’s Westside campus, 43 Lake Ave. Extension in Danbury. Participation is encouraged for high school and college transfer students interested in pursuing art studies at WCSU, as well as their parents, teachers and guidance counselors. Admission is free and advance registration is required; reservations may be submitted online at https://wcsuvpac.eventbrite.com.
Participants are invited to bring in selections from their works or a digital portfolio, and will meet individually with professional artists who teach at WCSU. Faculty members will critique portfolios to provide feedback and guidance on works presented and also will be prepared to discuss professional career opportunities in art and design, as well as concentrations for study in the Art Department’s Bachelor of Arts program.
