Do you have experience with a crit group? Or a creative support group that meets regularly? Irregularly? Here in San Francisco, I end up feeling pretty out there and on my own most days in regards to stretching and trying new things with my work. If you have experience, I'd love to hear about what work(s)(ed) for you. Do I need to start my own? Or how do I find one out there that doesn't require me hanging my butt out there with a group of strangers not invested in a relationship? How does one bridge the gap?
I am the grateful recipient of time and energy from a wonderful group of creatives with whom I previously did have a group with but I've always been curious about connecting ferreal with other visual artists. Also: scary! So just putting it out there: any ideas, universe?
