Sample Discord Critiques

Prof Lieu seemed like she was always online. You never waited long for an answer and a helpful guide to the appropriate Art Prof video or reference from the art world.

Alex was very supportive and challenged the students to dive more deeply into his favorite aspects of our work. He offered his own unique set of references for us to explore.”

Watch a voice session

“Staff was absolutely lovely—and very easy to get in touch with! I felt as though whenever I had a question, someone was answering me with online resources or images that could help.

I discovered so many cool digital artists through Jordan’s recommendations, and websites that were pertinent to the line of work I want!
