Critique & Discussion Groups
Inside Out by Marty Walker
AAWA members have created a variety of critique and discussion groups to offer constructive advice to one another.
In most critique groups, members take turns hosting the group in their home (weekly, bi-weekly or monthly). Members of the critique group will each bring a piece of work that’s still in progress and ask the group for constructive advice.
Also available are discussion groups that may or may not include critique, but expand into other art topics. Listed below are AAWA’s current groups with openings:
