A note about the art portfolio review session during the Fine Arts Scholarship Program:
If you are an art scholarship finalist and invited to the Fine Arts Scholarship Day on February 22 you do not need to bring any artwork with you to campus. You will be showing work from your online portfolio that you submitted with your application. The portfolio sharing session is an opportunity for applicants to show and discuss their work in a friendly setting. This is not a critique session. It is a group exercise with all applicants and St. Olaf studio faculty present. Each applicant will have about 2 to 3 minutes to present one piece of their choosing. After the presentations there will be time for questions by applicants and faculty. Each applicant will pre-select the piece they wish to present from the set of images they submitted for their application when they RSVP for Fine Arts Scholarship Day. Applicants do not need to bring actual work or additional digital images to campus.
