CalArts would love to meet with you and assist in the admissions process. We invite you to attend one of our events in your area, to engage with one of our representatives about your work and our curriculum, and to get a better sense of what it is like to be a CalArtian.

Free and open to the public; portfolio days are hosted each year in venues throughout the U.S. and Canada.
