Windgate Art and Design building

The morning offers a wide variety of events, ranging from discussing what it’s like to pursue a career in the arts to demonstrations of how to assemble a successful art portfolio to touring the fantastic new Windgate Art & Design building.


Students can also meet with a faculty member to review their artwork. Bring 3-6 of your best works for critique. Be sure to register separately for the faculty critique.
