All of us can benefit from having another set of eyes on our work from time to time. Have you made some pieces you aren't sure about? Are they finished? Is there something a little off? You don't quite know what to do next? Do you love discussing your art with a trusted mentor or in a small group setting?
I'll share the Zoom screen with everyone, one piece at a time, to discuss. Now, I realize not everyone is qualified to give critiques - I will start the discussion and then I'll open it up to everyone. My experience has been that even with groups of varying levels of skill or insight, I've never had a group that was unkind. With the kind of critiques that I lead, there is no room for negativity. The idea is that in a group you have the opportunity to learn from each other!
HERE’S HOW IT WORKS…
In advance, I'll have everyone email me a clear image of the piece of art they'd like to discuss, so that I can review it before we meet. (Feel free to ask a couple specific questions in the email, but it's also okay to simply say “I'm not sure what it needs.”) Then, every other Monday from 10am - 11:30am, our small group (4 - 7 artists) will meet on Zoom.
“At the deepest level, the creative process and the healing process arise from a single source. When you are an artist, you are a healer; a wordless trust of the same mystery is the foundation of your work and its integrity.”

THIS IS A FUN WAY TO LEARN AND CONNECT WITH OTHERS FROM THE COMFORT OF YOUR OWN HOME/STUDIO.
One of my favorite things to do is give group critiques to artists and art students. After working in about every 2-dimensional media there is, getting my MFA at age 56, and making collaborative art with other artists, I know exactly how that feels! I can help you assess your work and give you options. I can help you go from feeling frustrated to brimming with ideas!
I absolutely love to create communities in my classes, be it in-person, on Zoom, or in my Facebook group, “Unwind with Art” (BTW, if you aren't already in that group, you'll get added when you sign up for Creative Commentary).
