How to Lead a Discussion Group

Some helpful hints on how to lead a successful Discussion Group.

This video was created at one of our Wednesday morning artist gatherings, which have been taking place in Manhattan for over 15yrs. Over the course of the month we alternate meeting discussion formats including: topic, article, guest speaker, and Art Share Day (group critique). This weekly gathering is a linchpin piece of our activity in NYC. We encourage you to try what we’ve found to be valuable in your neck of the woods!
