The San Francisco Art Institute will be hosting the San Francisco National Portfolio Day (NPD) on Saturday, January 19. National Portfolio Days are designed for prospective students who are looking to further their education at the undergraduate and graduate level. Prospective BFA students will receive feedback on their portfolios from colleges accredited by the National Association of Schools of Art and Design. In addition, these sessions provide the opportunity to learn more about the curricula, faculty, and application procedures at participating schools. The event is free and open to the public.
