Portfolio Day: Boston 2008

Saturday, November 8th, 2008


It’s that time of year again when thousands of students, high school and college, worldwide fly into Boston (nov9) for National Portfolio Day for advice, tips, and tricks. Be it drawing, sculpture, academics, photography, writing, graphics, products, architecture, film, painting, or just to find out more, it’s always a great day to see our next generation of creativity at such a young age.

I’ll be reviewing portfolios for RISD again so look out for me! If you cant make it, be sure to read my 10 tips from previous years here. Generally each person gets about 10-15 minutes dependant on the crowd, but RISD generates a huge line so get their early if ya can!
