Online Critiques

To better service all our members throughout Canada we are supplementing our in-person education programs provided through Federation Chapters with an online education program. 


Why critiques?

Creating art is most often a solitary activity, and with only friends or family to provide feedback on your work, progressing as an artist can be challenging. To get to that “next level” you’ll sometimes need the constructive feedback to drive your work forward. Critiques will help you grow as an artist and help you develop your work. If you’re wondering where to go next, how to get accepted in more galleries or win more competitions, critiques are a necessary part of achieving those goals.


Federation critiques are provided by our Signature members; well-established as artists and well-respected as instructors and critiquers.


Hear what is working in your art, what's not working and, most importantly, how to fix it. You’ll receive an overall evaluation of your artwork's strengths and weaknesses and a clear idea of how to move forward with your art.


Interactive and recorded

Critique sessions are interactive. You'll need a webcam and headset with a microphone so you can interact with the critiquer. You can still view the critique even if you don't have a webcam and headset, but you won't be able to ask questions.


All sessions will be recorded and made available online for a month following the session. If you miss your session or if you want to see it again you can return to see it on the FCA YouTube channel as often as you'd like.


Full instructions, including a link to the webinar, are sent via email after registration, well before your session starts.
