with Kat Shannon

Dates: Thursdays, April 4th, May 2nd, June 6th 
Time: 6:00 pm – 9:00 pm CT 
Location: Online via Zoom

We chatted with Kat about the value of critique groups and what participants can hope to gain. Click here to read some of her thoughtful insights!

Join Kat Shannon for an online critique group that will focus on project and portfolio development. 


This will be a great opportunity to focus on a particular body of work and receive critical feedback in a supportive environment. The group will meet once a month for three months to share work and discuss project development, as well as best practices for preparing work for exhibition and professional portfolio reviews. Conversation will be tailored to the group’s interests and needs for advancing their projects and artistic production, and moving a project forward to completion.


This critique group is ideal for emerging photographers, recent graduates, new practitioners, and/or those making a shift from commercial to fine art work. The focus will be on developing a critical dialog and establishing good self-evaluation skills in addition to editing and sequencing a series of photographs. 


Participants should plan to focus on a single body of work for the duration of the sessions and should be prepared to screen share their work during each session.


Filter Photo will alternate between in-person and online critique groups. Check back with us in the fall for an in-person version of this critique group.

*Please note: this critique group will be limited to 10 participants total; additionally, there are two spots reserved for students and they are available on a first come, first serve basis.
