I have created a couple of in-depth Critique PowerPoint that asks a lot of great, thought-provoking questions. I usually go through one of these PowerPoint Critiques with my Art 1 class as as introduction to Critique. You could totally use these with younger classes or even adult learners!
We walk through these together. I just let them shout out responses (as long as the class can handle it!!) We take some time discussing the aesthetic theories when we get to the Judgement step. After we do this together in class, I have students select an artwork to critique on their own and they complete a 4 Step Art Written Critique Worksheet.
I plan to add some more artworks to these in the near future. Let me know if you have any suggestions for other artwork to critique!
So far, I’ve added Peter Paul Ruben’s Daniel in the Lions’ Den and Winslow Homer’s In the Garden (Rustic Courtship) because they are in the public domain and they tend to be interesting works to keep students engaged!
