Facilitated by Mia Bergeron
Limited to 7 participants per session.
This online critique is a chance to gain insight and feedback on your work as well as see what others have been working on, all from the comfort of your own home. Facilitated by Mia Bergeron, each critique session is scheduled for 3 hours and will be limited to 7 participants per session to allow ample time for each participant to have a meaningful amount of critique time. Participants may have up to two paintings in progress critiqued. Through ZOOM video conferencing, Mia will thoroughly look at and critique each piece, placing importance on content, technique, and imagery, while providing feedback. This is a great opportunity for any artist to gain guidance, accountability, and a creative push. A recording of the entire session will be sent to the participants so that they can rewatch or use it for reference.
Images: After registering, you will be asked to email good-quality images of up to two works that you want to have critiqued. These will be due to Townsend Atelier a few days prior to your critique so that Mia can have plenty of time to prepare.
ZOOM: The critiques will be conducted via ZOOM from the comfort of your own home, so just make sure you have the ZOOM app downloaded to your computer, iPhone, or tablet. About a week before your session, you will be sent a link to the ZOOM session for which you have signed up with instructions on how to join your session. Click to download the Zoom app.
