ArtStation Portfolio Review Session

On Saturday from 1:00 pm – 3:00 pm, Randall Mackey (Art & Design Education Manager), ArtStation Learning instructors Anthony Jones and Robbie Trevino will be offering portfolio reviews on a first-come, first-served basis.

If you would like to have your work reviewed, please arrive early to ensure you secure a spot. As wifi in convention halls can often be unpredictable, we recommend you download your ArtStation portfolio offline. This will save time and make it easier for them to browse your work.
