What’s a portfolio? And why should you build one?

Portfolios are what you use to tell your creative story. Having a strong portfolio will help you in a lot of ways: Applying to school, sharing your work with potential employers, or just getting to know yourself better on your artistic journey. But it can be hard to know where to start. That’s where LINK comes in!

In this workshop, you’ll get top advice from professional creatives who have first-hand experience building their own portfolios for school and work. You’ll get the opportunity to take portfolio-quality photographs of your work, receive feedback on anything in progress, and conduct mock interviews to develop your verbal story. Join us in learning about applying for arts school programs, and how to apply for the LINK Senior Scholarship!

Student Prep:

  • Bring your artwork! All kinds of visual art are welcome. Pieces can be in-progress or complete
    • We’ll assist you with photographing up to 3 of your pieces using professional guidelines
    • If you’d like help deciding which pieces to focus on, bring as many as you like and we’ll help you narrow it down
  • Notebooks for note taking are encouraged (we'll have a few extras for those who don't have notebook access)

Note: This workshop will be held in-person. Please RSVP by Tuesday, January 9 at 6pm to get a seat!
