YouTube Live Critique Submission Form

Submit your artwork for a free live critique on YouTube!

We accept submissions on a rolling basis from artists ages 11 and up. We accept all forms of visual art: photography, 3D, animation, painting, short films, (limit 3 min) digital media, drawing, installation art, printmaking, graphic design, jewelry, artist book, illustration, and more!

You can submit 1 artwork up once a month.

If you have already received a critique from us, please wait at least 1 month before submitting again as we need to make room for new artists to receive a critique. Please know that we do not accept fan art.

If your artwork is accepted for a free critique, we cannot guarantee when your artwork will be critiqued. We do email artists our critique schedule in advance of when their artwork will be critiqued.

If you need further assistance, please contact us.


Writing your artist statement

Your artist statement is enormously helpful to us when we critique your work, so the more insight you provide us about your artwork(s), the better equipped we will be to give you a thorough critique.

If you haven't written an artist statement before, we have a video and a written article for writing an artist statement here on this page. We do consider the amount of effort and thought an artist invests into writing their artist statement when we review submissions.  If you copy and paste your biography from your website instead of answering the questions below, write a very short artist statement that is only about 2 sentences, or if you type curt answers to our questions below, your submission is much less likely to be accepted.

We recommend writing your artist statement elsewhere first so that you have a copy of it saved in case anything happens while you are filling out this form.

Please answer these questions in your artist statement. 

1. What is your background as an artist?

2. Explain your approach to the art media you used in your submission.

3. What was your motivation for choosing your subject matter?

4. What themes and ideas are you trying to communicate?

5. What do you aim to achieve in your artwork?

6. Anything else you'd like us to know about you or your artwork.

Please format your artist statement as a narrative statement that is written in first person.  If you type short answers to our questions into the text area without formatting it as a narrative statement, your submission will not be accepted. 

Look at the artist statement in the video description of this video for an example of a narrative artist statement written in first person. If you have questions, please contact us.
