how to handle large painting on the portfolio day?


Recommended Posts

When I google images of "national portfolio day ", I saw lots of pictures with people carrying large portfolio bags and with their original paintings. Is that a common practice to bring original paintings ? 


Some of my paintings are larger than 30x30 inch on stretched canvas, not a good idea to  use the originals? Is it better to take large size prints,  or a book  (16 inch the long side at most ), or even an laptop/ipad?



Thanks for your suggestion!

That would be crazy... I wouldn't risk it! Spend some time taking photos of the piece and then present it on your computer.  I don't think schools are expecting to see original work. Try emailing some of the schools and ask what they prefer...


 I  been trying to get more first hand experience regarding Grad National Portfolio day, so if you go please post your experience.
