Critique is fundamental to a mature artistic practice, essential to artistic development, reflection, and assessment. Critique pushes us to grow our artistic vision in the most powerful way possible. Critique advances our artistic voice, intellectual curiosity, and respect for the wide expression art can make, including aesthetic, form, process, and content. A focus on the work, rather than on our subjective response, develops a critical and reflective attitude towards our art-making process and result, as well as towards art from the historical to contemporary, the familiar to the completely new. In this workshop participants will engage in individual guided critique in a group format, and learn strategies for continuing to push their work forward in meaningful ways. Participants will each receive a 30-40 minute discussion on their work.

Participants bring 4-6 actual works.
