FRESH EYES art critique evening

FRESH EYES: an evening art critique! 👀 👀 👀

Do you ever want some feedback on your work in progress? Head down to VANS to chat with your fellow artists for this evening of friendly, constructive art critique. Working alone in the studio can be isolating, so if you want to get out of your own head and get a new perspective, come join us and get some Fresh Eyes 👀 on your artwork!

VANS members can bring work in any medium or images of the work on a USB to show the group. VANS will provide a screen, projector, laptop, and snacks. Just let us know that you’re coming in advance so we know we have enough artists to run the session. The first FRESH EYES was Thursday, October 18 at 7 pm, and it went well, so we will have another free drop in session in the spring.

Date: TBA
Halifax: Visual Arts Nova Scotia, 1113 Marginal Road

RSVP to this critique session by emailing VANS.
