RISD participates in a number of national Portfolio Review events sponsored by the National Portfolio Day Association.

These events give prospective students the opportunity to present their portfolios to representatives from art and design colleges and university art departments across the country.

RISD representatives are available to meet with you to critique your work and provide information about graduate programs. No admissions decisions are made at portfolio days, nor are you required to attend one of these events as part of the application process. It’s simply an opportunity to get more information about RISD while receiving feedback on your portfolio.
