Mississippi School of the Arts showcased student work during a special college review day on October 25, 2022–MSA Portfolio Review & College Showcase with the College Fair. Each year, college and university art programs are invited to MSA on a special day for informal reviews of senior student portfolios and performances. Both juniors and seniors get first-hand critique by professors and may also qualify onsite for program scholarships. This year, nearly 60 representatives registered and attended the event, showcasing art programs from 6 different states.
In addition to portfolio reviews, students in select disciplines participated in masterclasses conducted either onsite or virtually through Zoom. In Masterclasses, students engage and interact with professors and art professionals in workshop activities.
MSA art programs represented were Dance, Literary, Visual, Vocal Music, Theatre, and Media. Colleges and universities not only attend this day but visit the campus numerous times for recruitment throughout the school year.
