Critique as Ritual / Critique as Creation | Jason Lazarus | July 26, 1:00-5:00pm


One of the fundamental educational experiences of MFA programs is the group critique–a student presents work to a class who then question, interpret, analyze, contextualize, and assess the work. Jason Lazarus offers an introduction into the ethos of this important art school practice–as idea, process and set of values–and then leads the group in a critically engaged group critique.

This class is limited to 12 students, 21 and over.  Participants should be prepared to participate with a piece of their own art work.
