Get organized, preserve your studio time, promote your work and the work of your peers!

The business side of being an artist can be daunting, and can take valuable time from studio work. Artists promote their work, support one another, as well as create opportunities for themselves and their peers. Crit Lab Biz workshops assist and empower artists to focus on what they care about- the studio, and get their work out into the world, all while building community among artists.

The Crit Lab offers group and individual workshops and private consultations, in person and online. Our virtual assistant is available for help with all digital work, such as preparing digital files and portfolios, organizing filing systems, setting up and updating websites.

Your practice must match your goals, your life, your ethics, your creative spirit.
We are committed to empowering artists to design individualized strategies to sustain a lifelong practice, to support one another in our ventures, and create a quality of life and an economy that reflects our ethics.

Contact us to collaborate on a plan for your practice- to create space in your schedule for more studio time - and - less computer time. Each project is especially designed for the participants.
