Creator’s Circle: A Workshop for Feedback, Accountability, and Support

This circle is a safe space where independent creatives can get feedback on their personal projects. Bring whatever it is you’re making (script pages, boards, concept art, character animation, models, paintings, lighting, etc.) or start something new. We’ll discuss how to give and receive critique, learn how to support each other as artists, and talk shop.
