Bow Skills Peer Crit: Digital Media, with Guest Artist Melanie Manchot

Thursday, May 2, 2019
RAW Labs, Norton Quays, Royal Albert Wharf, London, E16 2QJ

3 artists, 3 locations, 3 themes

This spring there will be 3 themed evenings each with a special guest established artist.

Join us to present your art work, hear feedback from peers and join the conversation. In each session the guest artist will share their practice to kick off the evening and be part of the facilitated conversations around the practising artists work.

Guest artists will work in 3 areas: painting, digital/media and 3d/installation.

Bow Arts seeks to support creative professionals at all stages of their careers. In 2015 Bow Arts launched Bow Skills in response to an artist survey which showed over 90% of practicing artists find it useful to receive further support outside formal education. Bow Skills is a dynamic and relevant programme of Continuing Professional Development (CPD) which is informed by an artist steering group and open to all creative practitioners across London. The programme of talks, panel discussions, new skills labs and peer crits is open to all, with concession rates available to Bow Arts artists and students.
