Activity 9: The Big Crit

The Big Crit (Daumier)

Instructors: Lead by Patrick Ng and various instructors

Location: National Design Centre – Atrium

Activity Description*

In this structured session, a number of well-regarded Urban Sketchers will form a circle or line of tables, each with a seat for him/herself and a guest. Each participant, sketchbook and artwork in hand, will cycle around the tables, receiving a quick critique of his/her work from each of the teachers—not unlike speed dating. The variety of teachers will provide a wealth of useful advice and feedback for the participants. Every five minutes, each participant will move on to the next table with the next teacher.
