School of Art and Design at Montgomery College to Host Open House
Prospective Students Invited to Visit and Receive Portfolio Review, Feb. 5

The School of Art and Design at Montgomery College will host an open house and portfolio day for prospective students on Saturday, Feb. 5, from 11 a.m. - 4:30 p.m., at 10500 Georgia Avenue, Silver Spring, Md.  The open house will provide prospective students with the opportunity to learn about the School of Art and Design’s programs, as well as admissions procedures, financial aid, and portfolio requirements for the associate of fine arts degree.  Currently enrolled students will conduct tours of the facilities.  In addition, faculty members will individually review the art portfolios of prospective students and answer questions. 

The School of Art and Design, formerly known as the Maryland College of Art and Design, became part of Montgomery College in the fall of 2004.  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, letter of recommendation, and copies of their transcript.  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 February 5 open house and portfolio day is required.  Prospective students are asked to sign up for one two-hour session.  To register or receive additional information, contact Maggie Noss in the School of Art and Design Admissions Office at 301-649-4454 or visit:

For disability-related accommodations, please contact Maggie Schmid, dean of the School of Art and Design, at 301-649-4454 or at least two weeks before the open house and portfolio day.
