Event Information

Portfolio Day gives Arkansas’s high school students interested in pursuing an art-related post-secondary education the opportunity to meet with representatives from colleges and universities with art programs throughout the state and region.

Students should bring 10 to 15 pieces of their best work (photos of larger pieces) and be prepared to discuss their techniques, media choices and creative processes.

Students may visit with as many representatives as they choose to learn about their art programs and available scholarships. Students are also invited to tour the UALR facilities as well as learn about the THEA Foundation and its scholarship opportunities.

For any questions regarding UALR information, please contact Tom Clifton, Department Chair at 501-569-3182 or Kevin Cates, Event Coordinator at 501-569-8639.
