​A NoCA crit group is an enjoyable and useful way to stay connected and share work with other NoCA artists throughout the year. It can be based on any common theme (e.g. painting or textiles or writing), or take a more free-form approach.

NoCA crit groups are self-organizing, and there are no “rules” beyond NoCA membership.

For more information on forming a crit group with other NoCA artists, please contact Joan McCandlish at
