MAD Portfolio Programs
Sponsored by MAD, Parsons and the Joan Mitchell Foundation, this is a series of roundtable discussions and workshops targeted towards college-bound high school students, designed to enable them to meet and learn from artists, designers, and other art professionals. This day includes hands-on "how-to sessions" on documenting work and writing to support your portfolio submissions. Art professionals will also share projects and give direct feedback to students. Participants will be able to refine ideas and practices on building a competitive portfolio for college. Our next Portfolio Redefined Session will be held on April 20, 2013.

The Joan Mitchell Foundation, in collaboration with the Museum of Arts and Design, hosts a series of workshops specifically designed for students planning to apply to New York City high schools specializing in the arts. The workshops provide an overview of the schools and individualized assessments of student portfolios.
