Fine Art Critiques & Lessons via Email (Summer II)
DESCRIPTION: Since closing March of 2020, there has been little opportunity for most MCA students to have their art reviewed by a teacher or mentor. Every artist needs feedback to improve their skills. It is important to get fresh eyes on artwork and a professional's critique. Jon Neuse is offering critiques of any 2-dimensional artwork during the Summer II 2021 Session.

Working via email, your enrollment will include:
* 8 one-on-one critiques with meaningful guidance, clear, specific and helpful suggestions on your current or past work
* 8 one to two written lessons about a topic of fine art including: composition, fine art principles, value and color, how to make a collage, and others.

Send a photograph of your work via email each week, any 2-dimensional work (acrylic, oil, pastel, or watercolor painting, collage) for a thoughtful and specific critique.

For any questions or concerns, please contact the registrar at registration@minneonkaarts.org to be put in contact with the instructor, Jon Neuse.
