Most artists work in isolation without the advantage of receiving feedback on their work. Here is the opportunity to not only hear how your work is “seen and interrupted by the viewer”, how to create feeling and power through your images, experiment with challenges, but also how to paint intuitively while staying positive and focused on your passion to paint. And…to learn from the critiques of other artists’ work.

There is time for 8 participating artists to exhibit two works of art to be critiqued.
