PrattMWP May Be Visiting Your City

Each year, PrattMWP’s admissions counselors travel throughout the U.S. and Canada attending both regional and national portfolio days along with a few college fairs. These events are an excellent opportunity to meet with us near you to discuss your interests in art and design and to receive feedback and advice on your artwork/portfolio as well as information about PrattMWP, its programs and requirements. View a chart of the portfolio days we attend below. They are also listed on our online calendar.  More information including the address and location is available on the calendar as well.

Portfolio days are specifically for prospective undergraduate students to receive feedback on visual portfolios. Please bring 12 to 20 pieces of original work including sketchpads if available. You may bring work in any medium including clothing, jewelry and sculpture if you can carry it. Most schools will ask to see work from observation, so make sure you bring enough of a selection. If you wish your digital work to be viewed, bring your own laptop as well as an additional battery as most colleges will not have access to an electrical outlet or laptop.
