Group Critique with James Toogood (ONLINE) IN 747JT


with James Toogood

Calendar Next available session starts Jun 25, 2021 at 9 am

Feeling isolated in your studio? Unsure of your next step? A group critique is an excellent means of both relieving artistic uncertainty and finding inspiration in the ideas and artwork of others in a supportive environment. Join noted artist and PAFA faculty James Toogood for supportive, non-judgmental feedback on your artwork while helping you to dispel feelings of self-criticism or discouragement. Learn to perceive doubt as a tantalizing entry for creative investigation rather than a destructive force.

NOTE: Each critique session will begin at 9 a.m.  Each student will receive a 30-minute critique minimum.

Session 2 register by:  June 11

Session 3 register by:  June 18
