Our lives have been dramatically disrupted by the pandemic, however, artists have continued to create despite the isolation. We recognize the need to have other professionals look at and contribute different perspectives regarding our work. Crit-Z provides studio critique group sessions. If you're struggling and can't quite figure out how to break out or if you're ready to step it up and work toward your full creative potential, then please join us with artist Henry Bermudez in a constructive discussion on your art, your process, medium and studio challenges. Crit-Z will enhance the development of your work and is designed for all levels.
