Heart-Based Critique (1-2 sessions)
It can be hard to create in a vacuum. You might be feeling stuck, or you’re trying something new that you’re not sure about or you’d like a fresh eye to provide a serious critique-of what you are creating and have a thoughtful conversation about the work you’re creating.
I won’t be talking about liking or not liking your work in this session. And whether or not I “like” your work or think it’s “good” is basically irrelevant to me. It’s about looking at your work, asking you want you are wanting it to “do” and talking about that. Some of the things I’ll be considering is “is this work doing for me as the viewer what this artist wants it to?” What changes/adaptations/direction could this artist consider to get the work where he/she wants it to go?” ”What do I see here that might be valuable for this artist to consider in general for her/his artmaking?”
It’s super important to me to be respectful of your work but this critiquing session is not for everyone because it’s not about saying everything you make is great. Sometimes that is hard to hear or things are tender and not ready for prime time. Basically, during these critiques, I’m not thinking in terms of good/bad, I”m just thinking, how can I help this person get where they want to go?
I must say that I LOVE to look at people’s work and I’ve got a great knack for knowing where you may want to go with something you are working on. I want you to feel excited and energized at the end of this session.
(If you live in the NYC Metro area I can meet you in person or you can send me images of your work.)
