A nimble critique format seeking to have a meaningful consequence on moving a body of work further quickly. Over the course of five evenings, participants will create new work for discussion, and build on weekly input. Of particular interest to graduates of BFA programs whose work is not progressing swiftly, and those preparing for an MFA application.  Participants will be selected from the pool of candidates, and a commitment to inquiry and risk is the prerequisite. This workshop is offered twice, and students are free to sign up for either one, or both, if they would like to continue over the full 10 weeks.
