Feedback Forum for Artists & Designers

WHERE THE HECK do we Artists get feedback on our work? School? The majority of us are not IN school anymore.. We’re busy creators that treasure other’s critiques especially when we have a solo studio and few peers to share with.

Bring a piece of art or design to City Hall Artspace Lofts in Dearborn, MI for kind critique from your creative peers!

2 and 3D artists/designers + creative writers are invited!

Our event is part networking, part needed feedback. Click here for the previous Feedback Forum event images.
