No-Stress Critique

No-Stress Critique
Tuesday, November 12, 2013 - 11:30pm to Friday, December 6, 2013 - 8:30pm

Presented by the Artists’ Health Alliance and OCAD Alumni Relations

As many visual artists and designers know firsthand, criticism can be far from ideal and it’s not always rational, fair or constructive.

It’s challenging when your work and your design is being torn down after you’ve spent so much time and energy building it up.
But there’s nothing more helpful to artistic growth and development in any field than constructive criticism.

This workshop will provide you with the strategies, insights and tips to evaluate your own work, how to get the most out of valid and constructive feedback.

Keep your creativity on track, learn how to listen to a critic and most of all, keep growing as an artist.

Register today at artistshealth.com or call 416-351-0239. Space is limited.

$25.00 regular admission
$20.00 for students and OCAD Alumni
(Use discount code AHAOCAD20)

Dr. Adam Lodzinski As an artist, he is no stranger to the issues of artistic development that confront creative endeavors. The winner of numerous awards, including the Canada Council for the Arts Creation Grant to Professional Artists, he’s participated in over 150 exhibits in Canada, the United States and abroad
