Active Status Feedback Session

Spacer

Achieving Active Status is a big accomplishment - standards are high.  It should be considered a challenge and something that takes time and effort on your part.  If you find yourself in the position of not receiving your Active Status, that should not hold you back - it should encourage you to delve deeper into your practice and find out what is working and what's not.

 

That is what these Active Status Feedback Sessions are here for - to provide you with constructive criticism and feedback on how you can improve your work for the next time you apply for Active Status and help you grow as an artist.  These sessions are led by our Signature members who are well-established as artists and well-respected as instructors and critiquers - they are the real deal.  Students will remain on a first-name basis so as to respect their privacy

 

Interactive, Online, Recorded - Active Feedback Sessions are online, interactive and recorded via an online software program, GoToMeeting.  Ideally you will have access to speakers and a microphone so you can interact with the instructor, however, there is an option to dial-in through a telephone or simply listen.  Sessions will be made available online following the feedback session. If you miss your session or want to see it again, you can return to watch it on the FCA YouTube channel as often as you'd like (the video will be set to private so only members from that feedback session will be allowed to view it).

 

Registration - Once jurying is complete, an FCA staff member will inform each applicant of the results.  At that time, members who do not receive their Active Status will be invited to enrol in the feedback session which takes place roughly one week later.  The FCA staff member will process the enrolment for the members as opposed to the members registering themselves.  Shortly thereafter, full instructions, including a link to the webinar and YouTube channel, will be sent via email.

"I would like to let you know how much I appreciated the Active Status Feedback Session. It is a great initiative by the FCA.  I was feeling that I had hit a wall. Now, after the feedback session, I have a better understanding of  what is expected in a submission and how it is assessed. Jeff Wilson did a great job, was very thorough and provided   helpful and constructive criticism of our artworks." - Anonymous, Jeff Wilson Feedback Session
