Artsbridge Hosts Free Performing And Visual Arts College Fair
Do you know any college-bound students pursuing degrees in music, dance, theatre, visual arts, writing or graphic design? Tell them about the National Association for College Admission Counseling's (NACAC) Atlanta Performing and Visual Arts College Fair. The event will be hosted by ArtsBridge on Monday, October 29 at Cobb Energy Performing Arts Centre. There will be a workshop on College Admission 101 from 6-6:45 pm and the Fair is from 7-9 pm. Both are free and open to the public.
Although a growing number of students are pursuing college degrees in performing and visual arts, few resources exist for artistically inclined students as they plan their college careers. NACAC's Performing and Visual Arts College Fairs, offered in 26 locations throughout the country, fill that gap by providing attendees a chance to learn about educational opportunities tailored to their interests. Students can meet one-on-one with admission representatives from colleges, universities, conservatories, studios, festivals, and other educational institutions with specialized programs in the arts. Information is also available about financial aid, portfolio days, auditions and entrance requirements.
"ArtsBridge is excited to partner with NACAC to host this performing and visual arts college fair, the only one of its kind in the state!" said Jennifer D. Dobbs, Executive Director of ArtsBridge Foundation. "Georgia boasts so many talented high school students and this is the ideal opportunity for them to meet with college representatives and learn how they can pursue a degree that matches their passion for the arts."
