The interactive nature of an artist call is a great way to get customized support

An artist call makes it easy and fast to get advice that is customized to your specific needs and questions. The interactive nature of an artist call makes for a stimulating artistic dialogue which can provide the motivation and inspiration you need to make progress with your artwork.

How to make the best use of your artist call  

An artist call is terrific for asking broad questions about your artwork in general. For example, you might ask us what you can do to improve your skills with color.  If you’re wondering what art media we think you should try out, or maybe you have a series of artworks you’d like to start and want to know where to begin, an artist call is a good fit.

We will tailor your artist call to your specific needs

Common topics include professional development; perhaps you would like to know whether you are ready to approach art galleries, or whether art school or a liberal arts college is a better choice for you.

Maybe you have interest in working in animation and want to know more about how that industry works and what you’ll need to study to be well equipped for the field.

The difference between a portfolio critique and an artist call 

An artist call is not a portfolio critique. If you simply want feedback on your artwork, and want to hear specifics on each artwork in your portfolio, a portfolio critique is much more efficient.

Portfolio critiques also address which pieces to remove from your portfolio, and general advice about what direction to go in with your artwork. Get info on purchasing a portfolio critique here.
