I hope you are just as excited as I am about this year’s conference in Portland! I’m not sure what I’m looking forward to most – the great conference programing, all the amazing exhibitions, seeing old friends, or the chance to visit Portland itself!
I am however, especially excited about the opportunity for students to critique with professional artists and educators from around the country. The Student Critique Room gives students at all levels an opportunity to discuss images of their work, gain a new perspective, and prepare for graduate school, job applications, gallery representation and more.
Student Critiques will be held Thursday March 23, & Friday March 24, 9:00 am – 4:30 pm in room in room C124 (Level 1) of the Portland Conference Center. Critiques will be 25 minutes long, with a 5-minute break between each session.
The sign-up form is now live and can be found HERE. Sign-up is on a first come/first served basis, so we encourage you to sign up now! This year we are also introducing drop-in slots, which will be available on a first come, first served basis each day.
Please come to the conference with your images already prepared and saved to a flash drive. All critiques will be of digital images; please do not bring actual artwork. Laptops will be provided, but NCECA does not provide Internet access in the Student Critique Room.
If you have any questions about the Student Critique Room, please contact: firstname.lastname@example.org.
