Mad Scientist – Artist Max Rubenacker originated and continues to run the +Friday Art Critique

Max said: “I started FAC back in late January because I felt a need in the community for some sort of focused, organized gathering of artists. Up to that point we could ask for critiques on our own, but there wasn’t anything consistent. When I attended art school we’d get together and have a critique every Friday afternoon, so I used that as a model. There’s no official sign-up, artists just post their work and tag +Friday Art Critique, then sometime Friday morning I assemble links to everyone’s posts and make an image showing all the work that was sent in that week. Again, following the model of all the students putting their art up on the walls so you could get a sense of the work as a group. My goal is to drive some traffic to artist’s work and get people together who might never have met otherwise.”

Take a look at Max’s website–I love his original sound vibration paintings–you’ll find them on his website  greetings.somethingformed.com

Turps Banana Art School Correspondence Course

There is something very interesting about this so I wanted to share. Perhaps you would like to apply, or reading this blog post will give you the idea to create your own art school correspondence course!

Turps Banana Art School / Correspondence Course

Application deadline 30th August 2012

Starting this October, the correspondence course is an innovative new project giving painters a critical perspective and challenging insight into their practice, wherever they are, in the form of quarterly appraisals.

Running over 12 months, participants will engage in a two-way process during which they will present works, and in turn receive feedback from a dedicated mentor and the wider tutorial team at Turps Art School.

Applicants must have a personal email address, access to the internet and reasonable facilities to document work digitally.

Participants will be provided with a dedicated online folder that will be visible to both themselves and the tutorial team. Participants will be expected to upload works, drawings, works in progress, sketchbook pages etc. during the 12 month duration of the course. It is important this is an ongoing process that best describes their output as this will allow the mentors to track developments and compile their observations between feedback points.
Cost of the programme for 12 Months: £1,500
