If you are an artist, you have the opportunity to have Kristen self-critiquing skills to improve your work and problem solve. Are you ready to cut through the confusion and take your artwork to the next level? Are you ready to save years of learning on your own? This is a great opportunity to apply this knowledge to your own art.
