School of Art and Design at Montgomery College to Host Open House
Prospective Students Invited to Visit and Speak with Faculty, Nov. 14 

The School of Art and Design at Montgomery College is hosting an open house for prospective students on Sunday, Nov. 14, from 1-4 p.m., at 10500 Georgia Avenue, Silver Spring, Md.  The open house provides prospective students with the opportunity to learn about the School of Art and Designís programs as well as admissions procedures, financial aid and portfolio requirements for the associate of fine arts degree.  Tours will be offered and faculty members will be on hand to answer questions. 

The School of Art and Design, formerly known as the Maryland College of Art and Design, became part of Montgomery College this fall.  The School of Art and Design at Montgomery College offers a two-year intensive art program, designed for students who want to transfer to a four-year art school.  To apply for the program, students must submit a portfolio of their work along with an admissions application.  Students in the program can major in either studio art or graphic design. They have the opportunity to graduate with an associate of fine arts (AFA) degree.

Advance registration for the November 14 open house is not required. For additional information, contact Maggie Noss at 301-649-4454 or log on to www.montgomerycollege.edu/schoolofartanddesign.
