The fastest way to an artist’s heart is to criticize their work.
That is, if your intent is to break the artist’s heart.
We all have baggage from failed collaborations and scars from harsh critiques.
But without healthy critiques and collaborators, you’ll never grow – as an artist, as a storyteller or as a person.
Creating out of your own self-contained motivation gets exhausting. And authentic artistic growth is slow (if not impossible) without regular, objective insights from a fellow creator.
But you absolutely DON’T need another failed collaboration or critique group where you can’t let your guard down…
What you NEED is a creative “Circle Of Trust.”
Gather a Creative ‘Circle Of Trust’ to Grow and Get Motivated!
Trust is the one essential element for creating healthy critique groups and creative collaborations.
We use the term “Circle Of Trust” for two reasons (not just because we like the movie Meet The Parents).
- “Circle” implies that we need input from many different kinds of people and not just our spouse, boy/girlfriend or dog. This episode will increase your appreciation for contrasting points of view and show you how to get the most from them.
- “Trust” as we have already established is the single most important element in any relationship. When trust is compromised, broken or never even established within our creative circles, critique groups and collaborations we are, at best, wasting our time. At worst, we’re building a relational time-bomb.
We aren’t talking about freelance-editor relationships, the impersonal class critiques you endure in art school nor a traditional “writer’s group” model.
All of those systems are great, but we can all benefit even more from those systems when they are comprised of creators from within our wider “Circles Of Trust.”
We will show you how to gather a group of trustworthy visual storytellers so you can form healthy critique groups and productive, creative collaborations.
With a healthy “Circle Of Trust” you’ll waste WAY less time and energy going in creative circles. You’ll find new motivation, clear perspective on your art and story, encouragement and a sense of belonging.
