   SOLD OUT!   

SCHEDULE 

 

Class groups will meet every Friday at 6:45pm (Eastern Time) - May 8th, 15th, 22nd, & 29th. Each weekly group session will run 1-2.5 hours, depending on lecture and critique time.

COURSE DESCRIPTION 

 

STAY INSPIRED. STAY ENGAGED. STAY CONNECTED. KEEP CREATING.

 

In April, we decided to offer free weekly critiques to former students and friends on Zoom. These critiques quickly became the highlight of our week at home. We quickly realized the therapeutic power of staying connected and creative during this very difficult time. We have decided to expand this offering into something more, and something that is sustainable for our family moving forward.

 

Creative Connection is a course designed as a continuation of these weekly critiques with some extra special sauce. In addition to weekly assignments and group critiques, we will have mini-lectures and demos. We will limit our group size to 10 so that we can get a great dialog going and so you can submit 2-3 images for critique instead of just one each week. 

Our weekly assignments have been created so that they can be easily executed from home if you feel inspired to make new work. That said,  you can absolutely pull images from your archives that fit the weekly assignments if you prefer (there has never been a better time to revisit past work!)

Dressing up for our weekly sessions and indulging in a festive beverage is encouraged, but certainly not required.
