Thurs., Sept. 29, Confederation Centre Art Gallery in Charlottetown:
Join Ray Cronin of the Art Gallery of Nova Scotia for a practical, hands-on, interactive workshop on the art of critique. Writing critically, specifically in the areas of exhibition reviews, will be the focus of this workshop. Participants will have the opportunity to practice writing a critical review by exploring the exhibitions on view at the Confederation Centre Art Gallery. This workshop will employ peer review and group discussion to facilitate learning. Participants will build their skills in writing critical reviews, and exploring description, content, and audience impact.
Presented by the PEI Writers’ Guild in partnership with the Confederation Centre Art Gallery and Culture PEI, as part of the Pen & Inkling festival.
