ArtForma lends to artists of all levels
Critique develops intention and objectivity in fine artmaking processes. Artists at all levels gain greater clarity regarding their process and intention through critique. In addition it builds confidence in areas that are experimental, or helps re-direct choices that are stale. By furthering their objectivity, intention and clarity through critique an artist positions themselves to grow as artists. We offer a monthly Critique group that formalizes the process through its use of Art Elements and Principals as a universal guide to developing strong composition, focus, and technical continuity.
Mentoring and Professionalization
Being an artist in the 21st century has more complexity and layers than at any other time in history. Not only is the art marketplace segmented by real work, but also academic work, administrative work, digital presence, visibility, networking and professional presentation. ArtForma intends to mentor artists of all levels by giving direction and analysis for an artists best practices. We want artists to leverage their tools and skillsets that will directly impact the art they make and the career that comes out of it.
ArtForma in conception would be a space that can add value to an artists professional arsenal, but part of this is being seen, getting public feedback, and having an impactful presence to audiences. For a limited time, ArtForma has a dedicated space for the Georgetown ArtAttack (every second Saturday), in the Historic Hamilton building. It is here that audience numbers are as high as 150 people for that single night.
