Gain a sense of mastery and confidence in this online weekly critique session with Gage Opdenbrouw. Being part of a critique group is one of the best tools an artist can have to help understand his or her own work and develop critical analytical skills.

In a friendly group setting, Gage will review your paintings, give thoughtful and thorough critiques and show how making even minute corrections can help create better paintings. Students will find it enormously helpful to witness first-hand the small changes that lead to huge improvements. Critiques will be interspersed with short slide show/demos to help illustrate points made. Discover ways to make your work more successful.

Whatever your painting level, you may join at any stage in a group of like-minded and supportive artists. Participants are welcome to just watch and listen or be an active participant.

Gage Opdenbrouw: 

“A deep thematic thread runs through all of my work, it’s a ‘vanitas’ sort of message, to take the time to be present, to notice the magic of noticing, the richness of what’s right in front of us. I think that there is something radical in making work that is intimate in scale and quiet in its content and its aims–it strikes me as a tonic, an antidote, for our times, which are increasingly dehumanized, and in which people are living lives that are increasingly disembodied, mediated by a screen, and constantly stimulated. My art is about connecting with this world, this moment, as it is, as deeply as possible.”
