NYC Crit Club offers Weekly Membership with group classes and/or Independent Studies (ISP).

NYC Crit Club hosts weekly grad-school style group critiques of serious artists work. Our goal is to support and strengthen the work of every artist in the group collectively. Critiques are held at different artist’s studios as well as at galleries and art spaces around the city. Participating artists take turns hosting and sharing their work in their studios. Members present on a three-week rotation to the group. At the end of the semester, a guest critic joins the course for critiques!
What's New This Fall?!
Art Text Tuesdays -- Collaboration via text between artists about your weekly goals
Artist talk with painter Sarah Faux
Final pop-up studio show with opening and final critiques
Hilary and Catherine will individually lead classes on Mondays and Wednesdays so 3-4 sessions run every week. Halfway through the semester leaders will swap over, Hilary will take over Catherine's Monday and Wednesday groups and vice versa. This way everyone can work with both Hilary and Catherine.
Painter and filmmaker Claudia Bitran will be leading select class as well joining as a guest facilitator .
