"In equal measure challenging and encouraging - a brilliant combination. I found it productive and exactly what I needed at a point where I feel a bit unsure about where I want to go next with my work. It helped me clarify my ideas and contextualise my art."
“I am now working with a greater focus and confidence.”
"The tutorial has spurred me on and given me the motivation to push my work to another level."
"It was a hugely positive experience for me, to have my work appraised in such a spirit of honesty and generosity. There was a real encouragement to follow my concerns and the exchange opened up some very helpful suggestions in terms of taking the work forward. I'm really starting to feel involved again and excited about my practice and am so glad I joined ZAP!"
"It is seven years since I had a one-to-one crit, with someone who was prepared to look at my work and tell me, honestly, what they saw. And the connections, sparks, observations will nourish me for a long while yet. It was a liberating experience, the chance to say out-loud one's doubts and hopes, and to return to one's work feeling energised."
