What would we do without CREW

In 2024/5, our Portfolio Review will be VIRTUAL.  This will save travel for you and open up each candidate to more schools. If you would like to attend for masterclasses and community, we will have a room for you to present your materials virtually to the schools.

Each Candidate will have one half hour for their own Portfolio Review!    This time will begin with the presentation of your materials.   We will have a LAPTOP, PROJECTOR, SCREEN set up for you to use if you would like.

The review will be in an intimate consortium style setting for you, so that the schools can get to know your vision, your thought processes and your ideas.    They are aware that the actual materials may not be as robust because of Covid circumstances during the first few years of Covid for this cohort, so this is a really great chance to share with them who you are and where you want to take the next 4 years.

The presentation should be in your Get Accepted Profile so the Remote Programs can have access to it.   We will record your session and download it to your profile for you.
