What a coincidence portfolios are really on my mind lately. In April I am
hosting our first annual portfolio review for all high school students in our
county and two others. I have representatives from several colleges and
universities and local art oriented businesses ( ad agencies, galleries, a
billboard company) coming to give a presentation on the importance of a well
designed portfolio and how to achieve that. After the presentation they will
meet with students in a one-on-one setting to go over whatever they have
brought as a portfolio. Each student will leave with a checklist of sorts that
will list their strengths, weaknesses, and suggested improvements. They will
know how to use their portfolio to get into school, get a scholarship and get
a job. I am hoping that this will become an annual event.
