School of Art and Design at Montgomery College to Host Preview Night
Prospective Students Invited to Visit and Speak with Faculty, July 21

The School of Art and Design at Montgomery College is hosting a Preview Night for prospective students on Thursday, July 21, from 6 p.m. - 8:30 p.m., at 10500 Georgia Avenue, Silver Spring, Md.  The Preview Night provides 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 and to show their work to faculty and admissions counselors.  Tours will be offered and faculty members will be on hand to answer questions.  There will also be a barbeque from 6 p.m. – 7:30 p.m.

The School of Art and Design, formerly known as the Maryland College of Art and Design, became part of Montgomery College last fall.  This consolidation offers students an art school experience at a community college price.

The new 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 SA&D admissions application. The portfolio may determine acceptance and possible scholarship opportunities during the SA&D application process. 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 July 21 Preview Night is encouraged and due by July 19. For additional information, contact Maggie Noss at 301-649-4454, ext. 301 or click on www.montgomerycollege.edu/schoolofartanddesign.
