5th Annual Portfolio Day @ the Hui

Robynne Royster, California College of the Arts, enthusiastically offers feedback about student work at the Hui's Portfolio Day event.

Mark your calendars! The 5th annual Portfolio Day has been scheduled for Wednesday, November 9th from 3 pm – 7 pm in the Hui Solarium. This FREE event features admissions representatives from top art colleges & universities and serves as an unbelievable opportunity for potential college students to receive thorough, one-on-one critiques of their work as well as professional guidance for a future career in the arts.

WHAT: Specifically developed for those interested in pursuing a career in the arts, this free program offers concentrated one-on-one consultations with experienced representatives from fine arts colleges. Portfolio Day encourages open dialogue about student work, addresses questions about college plans and supports exchange amongst all participants, offering so much more than your average college fair.

Portfolios should include a student’s best and most recent work, but can also include works in progress, sketchbooks and other samples. Students should expect to hear many different opinions of their work and be prepared to explain how they developed their ideas and vision.

WHY: This FREE event is a pivotal opportunity for young artists. It validates their inspired displays of self-expression as a means for building a successful future. It gives teens a chance to get their creative juices flowing and have their personal concerns addressed about college outside of the classroom; in a setting that is less obviously structured and conducive to more informal mentoring relationships with adults. Offering it for free enables access to anyone & everyone, which is an important factor for the Hui to consider as we continue to develop not only as a Maui arts focal point, but as a community center.

WHERE: Hui No’eau Visual Arts Center, 2841 Baldwin Avenue in Makawao, 808.572.6560,
