Joining a group…

September 19, 2011

Last week a good friend asked if I might be interested in joining her art critique group. Really?!!!! Me???? I was so honored that she would consider putting my name in for the group to decide. The members are all artists I greatly respect in the Benton county area. The group has been in existence for many years.  The email came Saturday that I was accepted! Woohoo!  The group also nominated my dear friend Carol to participate & she accepted too!  The date of the next meeting is set for November. This should certainly push my buttons enough to get my ass in gear and start producing!

Well, maybe after Fall Festival is over. 🙂

Maybe I’ll have to join the Corvallis Art Guild next month. Probably couldn’t hurt.

    Uh, oh. You’ll have to become eloquent about what you do and don’t like. Sounds like fun. I would make tons of enemies.

      In my mind, critiques are for learning both positive and negative aspects of a work. It’s a time to ask questions and find out what the artist had in mind. It’s about growing your/others work, not stamping it down into the ground. 🙂

    Congrats. I’m so happy for you! It is a good thing to learn to be more critical in one’s thinking. I hope it is a wonderful experience for you!
