College Art Day

Register Here

This event is for Junior and Senior students who are interested in pursuing Art as a career to participate in hands-on university art studio classes. There will be two art studio sessions. The students will have the opportunity to select from the eight different studio areas offered at Central Washington University.

There will be a morning and afternoon session and the department will be providing a pizza lunch at noon and an exhibit reception and awards ceremony for Look at Me: a High School Student Exhibition at 4 PM. The registration table opens at 9 AM. Students are invited to bring a portfolio for faculty to review.

The portfolio review is intended to give the student input on their artwork and advice on how to better build a portfolio for applications for scholarships etc. A portfolio is a critical part of an artist's career; this review allows the students to receive feedback from experienced faculty so they may apply a better portfolio to scholarships, college admission, and even jobs. Digital portfolios are encouraged, with up to ten examples of student work or photographs for 3D work. Please check the button on the registration form to indicate if you are bringing a portfolio.
