Critiquing your own artwork is an important artistic habit that will guide you in describing, evaluating and expanding your own creative skills.  Critiques invite the encouragement and viewpoints of others while cultivating your own descriptive language.  As an artist, you will benefit from this dialogue with your peers. Please feel free to ask to have your piece anonymously discussed. 

Our format will be a 1.5-hour session. Each interested artist will share & receive feedback on the piece of artwork they bring to the critique.  All 2D mediums will be accepted.  We encourage artists interested in exploring the power of the critique who simply want to observe and absorb to also attend.

During this session you will learn critiquing skills alongside your peers.  Your ability to describe your work will improve in this supportive environment.

Carol will explore: 

  • Key elements on how to critique your own work

  • Learn about the compositional and spatial devices used by the Old Masters and Modernists, how they relate to each other and how to  employ them in your work. 

  • Using a constructive & positive approach supports our creative voice 

Carol Dameron began her formal art education at the Sophie Newcomb College of Tulane University in New Orleans, Louisiana then continued at the Louvre Museum and The Centre Americain in Paris. Further studies at the Ecole des Beaux Arts in Dijon, France and an appointment to the Rietveld Academie in Amsterdam led to four years of landscape and plein air paintings in the countryside of southern Portugal. She also taught advanced painting at the Suntan Arts Center Center for 10 years.

Her paintings and drawings are in the collection of the Polk Museum in Lakeland, Florida and the Museum of Fine Arts in St. Petersburg, FL. Carol has exhibited at the Chad Mize Gallery in St Petersburg, Florida as well as the Gallery Onetwentyeight in New York City. She has received commissions from society portraiture, allegorical triptychs, murals and has numerous private collectors.

Most recently, she is drawing and painting with pure abstraction. Dameron taught anatomy and figure drawing at the Morean Arts Center from 1992-2004 and currently teaches classes on Wednesdays at Studio 620 as well as private sessions in St Petersburg, FL.
