Empowering Artists and Artist Communities.

Artists are a constituency. Together we can envision and create thriving, sustainable, ethical, artist communities, that can even change the world.

Patricia and the Crit Lab faculy are available for private critique, studio visits, and professional consulting. See the faculty pages for info. Patricia and Flo are available for professional development and work on the business side of your practice.

The business side of being an artist is challenging. We want to be in our studios, yet our work wants a life out in the world. We can help with individualized tools for a lifelong practice, for success as you define it, for a quality of life that reflects your ethics and your artwork. We can work with you to build an ecosystem for the goals, integrity, and creative spirit of your work and life.

Make it sustainable. Get organized, preserve studio time, support your work and the work of fellow artists.

"Artists can pool resources, knowledge, and opportunity in a myriad of ways to support one another in our lives and practices, today more than ever. I look forward to brainstorming those ideas with you." patricia
