We All Need Feedback
There’s a reason why writers have editors. No matter how well you write, there will be mistakes. The editor sees the work with a different set of “eyes” and can suggest improvements and offer new ideas.
As artists, we also need a second (or third) “set of eyes” on our work. We need to know how our work can be improved. We need to understand how our work is perceived by our audience – the viewer. Sometimes we can spot issues on our own, but most times we need input from others. This is where critique becomes an important part of our development as artists.
