Sidnie has an excellent suggestion. A few of us used to get together
in a high school art room every Tuesday night to paint. The teacher
often invited her students to join us to paint along side. We critiqued
each other as we worked. This was a great atmosphere for students
to see their teacher creating art and to grow.
