Group Critique: Learning Tools & Processes

Group Critique: Learning Tools & Processes

How do artists learn from the works of others? By learning to critically evaluate our own art, can we better understand how to grow creatively and promote our ideas clearly? This course focuses on learning approaches to criticizing art with the goal of helping students better understand how to look at art, give feedback to others and reflect on their own development.

Using student-supplied artworks as our subject, we move step-by-step through the four steps of critique: description, analysis, interpretation, and evaluation. Our activities will also touch on four key aesthetic theories – imitationalism, emotionalism, formalism, and instrumentalism – with the goal of helping students better understand the focus of their work. Students will be asked to submit works to the discussion, join in commentary and formulate opinions and reflections. Written handouts with guidelines for exercises will be provided.
