In the artist’s proverbial toolbox, there is no greater device for self-improvement than criticism, but used without proper training and practice it can be an unwieldy tool, useless, or even destructive. Join The Art of Critique for weekly in-depth group critique sessions. Learn how to use criticism ethically in a supportive community, and take home valuable, applicable advice from fellow classmates and the instructor. The course revolves around the critique of completed or in-progress work, so some previous art experience is encouraged— perfect for those who have completed previous art courses or who regularly produce their own art outside of class.
