As a visual scholar, your college selection and admission process is special. We know that this process may seem a bit mystifying—maybe even intimidating?

We are here to help with a special event this summer. Our Art School 101 presentation will give you great advice about how to prepare your portfolio, research schools, consider the difference between art schools and other colleges and universities, and develop your work through investigating a variety of resources.

You will also have the opportunity to:

  • Receive feedback on your portfolio
  • Learn about some of our groundbreaking alums
  • Take a tour of our state-of-the-art campus
  • View our loft-style residence halls
  • And, of course, we will be serving lunch!

We enjoy engaging in dialogue with emerging artists. Take this opportunity to join us on campus and begin your college selection process.

If you have any questions regarding this event, please contact our admissions office at 1.800.232.7242, 312.629.6100 or email us at
