National Portfolio Day 2013

Dianne & the girls wait outside Cornish for doors to open!


Saturday was one of the most important days of the year for young artists here in the Seattle area, with Cornish College of the Arts hosting National Portfolio Day; a mass meeting of Art School representatives and prospective students. This year was SAI’s seventh go-around at NPD, and it’s certainly starting to feel like we’re getting the hang of things! As usual, the masses were gathered early outside the doors and lines were long, but the feedback our students received made all the waiting worth it!

At SAI, mentorship students work with Dianne for years in an effort to perfect their portfolios to SAI standards. What are SAI standards, you might ask? Well, I can’t really go into the secret ingredients of an A+ portfolio right here on the internet, (you’ll just have to sign up for some classes to find that information out!) but needless to say we try as hard as possible to align our expectations with those of Art Schools and their subsequent industries. Striving for this level of work has rewarded our students with warm words of admiration every single year so far, and this time was no exception. Alana Roecker even walked away from The School of the Art Institute of Chicago with exceptional praise and recommendations for merit scholarships. Their reviewers described her portfolio as “the best they’d seen all year” which is incredibly impressive considering how many thousands of portfolios reviewers consider each application season. Even┬áthe toughest schools to please were obliged to admit that they were impressed this year, and everyone left feeling pretty darn pleased with their hard work.

Congratulations to all the seniors on their extremely innovative and lovely work, and to those well-prepared juniors as well! You guys rocked it as usual and you deserve all the compliments!
