Art Criticism

Art Criticism: Looking at Art

The ability to Describe, analyze, interpret, judge and evaluate a work of art is known as the critiquing process. This process can be just as important in art education as creating a work of art.
7the grade Fegely students spent a week learning the process of critiquing artwork.
To complete the process the students used the handouts below.

Students worked in small groups to complete each step.

Each group was given a Japaneese print to critique. This went along with our Unit on Japan.
Later in the week the students applied their knowledge to conduct a peer critique.
