ON-SITE CRITIQUE

An on-site critique is available for staffs who are considering or would like to have their yearbook publication evaluated at camp.  We consider critiques to be the ultimate teaching tool.  These assessments can help you and your staff learn from previous work and help to improve your 2018 yearbook.  On-site critiques will be 30 minutes. You will have the opportunity to discuss areas of strength as well as suggestions for improvement by one of our instructors. This service is an additional $50.
Additional information on preparing for your critique will be included in your registration packet. Sessions are limited so please register early to guarantee your sessions.
