Art College/University Representative Visits
Starting last year, I am having representatives from several colleges and Universities visit our juniors and seniors in my art room! Even though the high school has college fairs, and visits from general admissions representatives from many post-high school institutions, they usually aren't able to delve specifically into their art program. The reps who come to my room offer in-depth presentations, personal question and answer sessions, art career exploration, and can even view a student's portfolio (unofficially on a consulting level, or as an official admissions consideration) if the student chooses to share that day. I now have a section in my room dedicated to helping students who wish to persue art after high school. I have open house lists, forms to help with letters of recommendations, and a file box full of literature from schools.
Below are highlights and links from the schools who have visited previously, and scheduled dates/highlights for this year.
