Crit Sessions
Are you looking for an intimate, constructive environment to gain new perspectives on your artwork? Adopting art school’s format of group feedback, this program provides a selected group of local artists with valuable insight from a visiting expert.

Press Play
Calling all creative adults: find inspiration from artists and artworks and connect with others! Join one of our museum Educators and a local artist for a spirited conversation and art-making techniques that bring the art on view to life. This free program starts with a nontraditional tour of a current exhibition and ends with an imaginative mixer.
