About the company

Welcome to the NYC Crit Club Independent Study Program!

In our fifth year as an organization, our Independent Study Program (ISP) has evolved and expanded to include artists all across America and Canada - we aim to provide sharp critical feedback, fresh eyes and generous advice & thoughts on the work of artists we work with. The visit will include a consultation about your current artistic goals and aspirations, such as improving and developing your work, professional practices, and life plan as an artist.

Each ISP meeting is a one-on-one Zoom studio visit for one hour for $200. 

Prepare the following before booking!

- Google Slideshow Link. Please create a simple slideshow with 5-10 artwork images (can be works in progress!) 
What you select to show is up to you, just remember you only have 1 hr!

- List of goals for ISP meeting. This is your opportunity to outline what you are hoping to accomplish during the meeting.


Please note: You will not be able to book your ISP meeting without providing a Google Slideshow.  We kindly ask that the slideshow is prepared in advance to allow your ISP Instructor to have time to review. Thank you!
