Critique + Mentoring group
small groups up to 5 artists
AWOL Studios, Ancoats, M4
Flexible times to suit you
beginners to experienced artists
Many artists, at all levels of experience, rely on critique + mentoring groups like this to help them with ongoing long-term creative development.
Joining a group
If you do not currently have a group of friends or colleagues with a shared creative interest but you would like to join a Critique + Mentoring group, add your name to the waiting list and I will contact you when I am able to form a new group of 4 or 5 artists.
If you already have a group of artist friends or colleagues, then you can form your own private Critique + Mentoring group.
Beginners can benefit from receiving creative mentoring and objective critique or feedback on a selection of work they have completed to help them identify their creative strengths and those areas in need of improvement.
Improver, and intermediate level artists
Those with more art experience can benefit from receiving objective critiques or feedback on work they have completed around particular themes or projects. This helps artists gain a clear idea as to what is working and what needs to be revised, both in their work and the project as a whole.
The critique I offer is in 2D Fine Art skills and creativity with a focus on drawing, painting and mixed media – I do not offer critique for 3D sculpture, craft work, illustration, animation, design or graphic art.
Helpful Info + Guidance
“A fantastic introduction to drawing and painting. I learnt so much about technique, materials and equipment I feel excited to go away and practice what I have learnt.”
“I learnt about the basics of shading, 2-point perspective and use of guidelines [for measuring], priming [canvases], watercolours & acrylics, types of brushes, papers, canvas, and paper sizes.”
“A very good introduction to a range of drawing and painting techniques, ideal for someone like me who has not picked up a pencil or brush for 40 years.”
