To get to the next level in your own practice, you'll sometimes need the constructive feedback of an experienced critic and fellow artist to drive your work forward. Hear what is working in your art and ask for input on your current challenges. You’ll receive an overall evaluation of your artwork's strengths and weaknesses and a clear idea of how to move forward...
