University art programs are as varied as the students who attend the school, so it's important to find the right program for you. If you're a high school student interested in pursuing a degree in art, be sure to attend AETN's Portfolio Day 2012 on Saturday, Nov. 10, from 9:30 a.m. to 3 p.m. at network headquarters at 350 S. Donaghey Ave. in Conway.
Representatives of colleges and universities throughout the region will be on hand to review students' portfolios and discuss programs and scholarship opportunities. 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 AETN facilities and learn about the THEA Foundation and its scholarship opportunities.
