2017 School of Art Portfolio Review Day

Saturday, October 7th, 11:30 AM - 4:00 PM
School of Art Building, Texas Tech University

The TTU School of Art Portfolio Day is an opportunity for you to receive an in-person evaluation of your original artwork or Art History writing sample from a faculty member in the School of Art. We feel this feedback is important as you continue to develop your art making and art writing skills while in high school. We will also provide tours of our state-of-the-art facilities and provide a drawing and mixed media Three-Dimensional Design workshop led by our faculty. We welcome you to visit our galleries open to the public during your time on campus.

Please PRE-REGISTER HERE if you plan to attend.
