Spring Open House & Portfolio Consultation

NBCCD welcomes you to our Spring Open House on March 23rd from 10am – 3pm at 457 Queen St in Fredericton.

For the first time, this event will also feature optional Portfolio Consultation sessions. We will offer friendly portfolio consultations with our faculty. Let us see what you can do! Bring in your work, in physical form or digitally on USB, and meet with visual artists and designers to receive recommendations on possible career paths. Portfolio Consults must be booked in advance. Contact us today at NBCCDRecruiting@gnb.ca.

Guided tours, led by students and faculty, will showcase all of our studio facilities and feature live demonstrations. We are available to answer all of your questions and give insight into our Certificate and Diploma  programs. You can even experience real materials and techniques in fun hands-on activities. If you decide you would like to join us as a student next year, we will help you apply on the spot. 

No need to register for guided or self-guided tours.

Free parking for this event is located at the bottom of York Street behind City Hall.
