HYDE PARK, N.Y. -- High school and college art students will get the chance to show off their portfolios and get some good advice at an event in Hyde Park this Friday, Nov. 4.
College representatives will be on hand from 4-8 p.m. at the Henry A. Wallace Visitor and Educational Center at the FDR Presidential Library and Home on Route 9.
They will review both the students’ work and provide guidance on the admissions process.
The free event is being sponsored by Mill Street Loft, a multi-arts educational center based in Poughkeepsie.
Participants must register at the information desk where they will be given a list of attending colleges and their majors and locations.
Students can visit as many colleges as they want, organizers said.
They will then be able to show those representatives their portfolios and get feedback.
Faculty members of the Art Institute of Mill Street Loft will be available to discuss programs with the budding artists.
The center is at 4079 Albany Post Road (Route 9).
