Portfolio Redefined: Current High School Seniors
Saturday, October 13, 2012 from 9:00 AM to 4:00 PM (EDT)
New York, NY
Portfolio Redefined is for all high school seniors who are preparing an art and design portfolio for college admission. Join Parsons, MAD and the Joan Mitchell Foundation for a portfolio development day on October 13, 2012 that is devoted to workshopping ideas and practices for building a competitive portfolio for college submission. The day includes hands-on "how to sessions" on documenting work and writing portfolio submissions and roundtable discussions with working artists, designers and other art professionals. Artists and curators will share projects and give guidance to students. In the workshop students will have an opportunity to conceptualize and develop an idea and then discuss ways to turn it into a body of work.

When & Where
Museum of Arts and Design, Parsons The New School for Design, The Joan Mitchell Foundation
A pioneer in art and design education since its founding in 1896, Parsons has cultivated outstanding artists, designers, scholars, businesspeople, and community leaders for more than a century. Today, when design thinking is increasingly being employed to solve complex global problems, Parsons is leading new approaches to art and design education.
The Joan Mitchell Foundation celebrates the legacy of Joan Mitchell and expands her vision to support the aspirations and development of diverse contemporary artists. We work to broaden the recognition of artists and their essential contributions to communities and society.
The Museum of Arts and Design (“MAD”) explores the blur zone between art, design, and craft today. Accredited by the American Association of Museums since 1991, MAD focuses on contemporary creativity and the ways in which artists and designers from around the world transform materials through processes ranging from the artisanal to the digital.
