Product Description
A 4 step guide to using the Art Criticism Critique Process. This version has more detailed directions and assists student in their writing.

Sample Directions:
Art Criticism is the process of studying a work of art. When you become involved in the process of art criticism, you learn from the work of art. Critiquing an artwork is like investigating. You must assume the artist has a secret message hidden in the work. Your job is to find the message and solve the mystery. This is broken into four steps: Description, Analysis, Interpretation, and Judgement.As you go through the steps of description and analysis, you will collect clues. When you get to interpretation, you will make educated guesses about what you think the artist is trying to convey. Finally, during judgement, you will make your own decisions about the quality of the artwork.

Directions: Choose a work of art for this writing, make sure you have the artist name and other information for Step 1. On a separate sheet of paper, please write a paragraph for each of the following steps (a paragraph is at least 5 sentences. You should have 20 or more sentences at this end of this writing)
