A Virtual Workshop with Guest Artist!


Distinguished artist, curator, educator, and founder of Pyramid Atlantic, Helen Frederick presents a master class in presenting concepts for self-criticism, curatorial selection, and reflections in a collaborative critique session. The work presented will be viewed through a balance of material, imagery, technical challenge, and metaphor. Each participant brings a work for discussion: Artists should  bring their own work; curators, critics, collectors, and others may bring whatever work they would like to discuss. 


Registration closes May 13, 2021 to allow time for students prepare their artwork for presentation. With your registration you'll receive a quick 1-page "how-to" on downloading and using the Zoom video app.


PLEASE NOTE: All workshops will be recorded for Pyramid Atlantic's private use to better optimize our programming and share as examples for funders. You may mute your microphone or turn off your camera if you do not wish to be recorded.
