This is the page to sign up to have your artwork critiqued. If you're looking to RSVP to view the session, please visit this separate page.

About the Series: In April, we are offering a series of critique sessions with nationally renowned artists/instructors. During these 1.5-hour sessions, each guest speaker will review 15 members’ work and provide critiques and/or lead discussions. Everyone is invited to watch the critiques, which we’ll broadcast online as Zoom webinars.

Our first guest is Glen Kessler, founder and director of The Compass Atelier in Rockville and the judge of our 2019 Paint the Town Labor Day Show.


  • To submit a piece for a critique, click on “Register" at left. You’ll be asked to upload 1 image of your artwork.
  • You must be an MAA member to submit a work for critique.
  • We have 15 spots for this session.
  • Sign ups are first-come, first-served; we’ll have a small waiting list for each session in case someone has to drop out.
  • We ask that you sign up for just one critique. We want as many members as possible to have this opportunity.
  • If you can't get into this session, we'll have additional sessions.
  • Everyone (members and non-members) is welcomed to watch the critique sessions. Sign up to be a viewer here.
