What response do you have regarding your studio mate’s  works – really – that can help them see things that they might not see – things that might help them continue to learn from their own works and marks? NO KID GLOVES.

Presentations to the studio from the website – answer the questions from AP and present the work that has been created. G: Nothing – reflected on work that was produced.
