Art Critique with Adrian Cooke

August 8, 2013

The Lethbridge Artists Club is proud to launch a new Pilot Workshop. Thanks to Adrian Cooke, a professional Art Critic that these workshops are happening. These workshops are open for everyone (Members and Non-Members of the Lethbridge Artists Club).

Due to the extensive time requirement for critiquing all the paintings, the attendance is limited to a maximum of ten (10) people per session. Each artist can bring up to three (3) works of art for discussion. The work should be representative of what they are working at and what they may be investigating and experimenting with. Each artist should also bring a short 6 line statement about their work expressing what they think are the strength and concerns in their work. The statement will be read out to the other members so we may all understand the persons’ goals.
