Round out your creative process

 

A constructive critique experience is invaluable. It provides an opportunity to talk through ideas with peers who understand your background and process. It gives you a window into how others view and experience your work. Talking about art in this way, whether your own or someone else’s, can also help you understand your own art philosophies more clearly. Critique can create community, heal self doubt, and offer paths out of creative block.

Stay Connected

“The constructive and truly affectionate atmosphere Bri created from the start made me feel very welcome and integrated in our tiny club. Both aspects really helped to feel at ease from the beginning and made conversations so much more efficient.”

“The short videos were excellent introductions to each session’s topic: sound information, clearly structured and pleasantly presented - just the right amount to have something to think about over the week and keep growing but not too much to be a burden in these crazy times. . .”

“This is what we’ve been waiting for!”
