Cacti are prickly and can poke you with their needles. The same is true for critical people that come along and try to discourage you when you are making art. You might even pick on yourself for not making things the way you want. Criticism is the practice of judging the merits and faults of something. When you are first starting out as an artist, you need all the encouragement you can get. Most importantly, you need to believe in yourself and that you can do something.
This lesson helps beginning artists recognize what a critic is and how not to be too critical about their own creations.
This lesson is great for little budding artists in early childhood!
