How Do I Request a Critique?

Critiqued Course Critiques

If you are a student in an Atelier Rousar | online Critiqued Course, required, automatic critiques occur at 6 pre-specified intervals during the course's critique availability period.* These are in addition to various emails designed to help me get to know you better.

For the critiques, you must be able to provide me with suitable photographs of your setup at the stages in which you are requesting critiques. Complete directions for doing that will be provided as needed.

All critiques are in English and managed through either the course system or email. A Skype or FaceTime call may be necessary but that choice is at my discretion.

*As a means to provide you with accountability, the course's critique availability period begins one week after your enrollment date and ends six months later. Once the critique availability period ends, you will still have access to the course's content as long as the course is available on the website.

How Do Critiques Work?

My goals in giving you a critiques are numerous:

  1. To answer any questions you might have about the current stage of your drawing.
  2. To assess your drawing at its current stage.
  3. To point out drawing errors.
  4. To recommend corrections.
  5. To suggest the next step, or steps, that you should take.

Again, to succeed with any of those items will require a photograph of your setup that follows certain specific parameters. Failure to provide an acceptable photograph will limit my critiquing abilities.
