There’s nothing more potentially helpful to artistic growth and development in any field than constructive criticism. However, as many artists in the visual, literary, or performing arts know firsthand, criticism in the arts can be far from ideal and not always rational, fair or constructive. The key lies in recognizing and being open to informative feedback, while at the same time recognizing and being resilient to that which is unfounded.
Whether you are a visual artist, writer or performer, this one-of-a-kind workshop will provide you with concrete and empowering strategies, insights and tips for how to evaluate your own work, how to get the most out of valid and constructive feedback and how to prevent problematic feedback from being taken to heart. It’s a great opportunity to develop a key set of skills to have in your professional “tool box;” and, if you teach in the arts, it’s also a rare and terrific professional development opportunity! For workshop participants only…you can take Dr. Lodzinski’s book home for only $15 (regularly sold for $24.95)!
“Adam gets to the heart of the things that could potentially hold us back as artists, and what can propel us forward… you walk away with real ways to cope with feedback, a better understanding of what drives you as an artist, and more confidence.”
– L.L., Painter, Toronto
“The workshop absolutely addressed my needs. I was getting overwhelmed with too many idea ‘threads’ and getting frustrated trying to understand which of these threads to follow. Having read the book and taken the workshop, I am clearer about where I want to expend my energies… I was also so very impressed that artists of all backgrounds could find common ground with Adam’s approach.”
– C.H., Filmmaker and Visual Artist, Toronto
