Jazz band, video animation, Shakespearean drama, graphic design, sound engineering, operatic arias, set building -- sometimes the opportunities for arts majors seem like an all-you-can-eat buffet, both enticing and overwhelming. Fortunately, TeenLife Media and the National Association for College Admission Counseling (NACAC) can help.
Founded in 1937, NACAC has 16,000 counselor and college members dedicated to helping students make informed choices about post-secondary education. At NACAC’s annual series of Performing and Visual Arts College Fairs, held in 25 locations around the country, students can connect with universities, colleges, conservatories and other programs that can develop their talent, whether it’s performance-based or working behind the scenes.
TeenLife is proud to publish the annual 2017 Guide to Performing & Visual Arts Colleges that is distributed in print to all fair attendees as well as digitally to TeenLife’s members and high school counselors nationwide. It lists more than 375 colleges interested in engaging students in majors such as Theater, Film, Music, Visual/Fine Arts, Dance, Photography and Musical Theater.
TeenLife’s guide is a map for the tricky twists and turns of portfolios, auditions, careers and all the other things that make applying to performing and visual arts programs particularly complicated. Parents, students and educators are invited to download the guide and share it with anyone who might be interested.
