PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

Studio art classes often utilize group critiques to review and discuss student work. Frequently, however, most art teachers find themselves doing most of the talking! To promote STUDENT-LED DISCUSSIONS, art teachers will integrate ART CRITIQUE CIRCLES. Your students will learn how to discuss their paintings and start talking about art.

ART CRITIQUE CIRCLES are perfect for:

. . . Studio art classes of 10 or more students. Students work in groups of 5, with each member assigned a specific role within the critique circle.
. . . Teachers who want student-led class discussions. You simply copy the 11-page handout (one for each student) and then review the ART CRITIQUE CIRCLE process with the class. When students and their art work (in–progress or completed work) are ready for a critique, just follow the step-by-step ART CRITIQUE CIRCLE process outlined in the handouts.
. . . Differentiated instruction integration: ART CRITIQUE CIRCLES indulge all learning styles—auditory, visual, kinesthetic, intrapersonal, interpersonal, spatial, mathematical/logical, linguistic, and musical. Each ART CRITIQUE CIRCLE requires 5 distinct roles and responsibilities of the students.
. . . ANY studio art class. The handouts are painting class-specific, and may easily be adapted to another fine arts medium (drawing, printmaking, sculpture, ceramics, etc.).

Please note: To facilitate the student groups, I recommend using colored lined 5” x 8” index cards for the specific roles. In my critique circles, I use the colored index cards in purple, green, yellow, blue, and pink; these cards may be purchased in single-colored packages or in assorted color packages. These index cards may be purchased at most office supply stores.
