Hi Ticia,

Marcia Muelder Eaton in her book "Art and Non-art" provide something may be
useful to you:
",Artistict production, Artist's background,Artist;s intention, Content of
work, Function of work, Setting of the work".

Some other criticism models like Rod Taylor's "Form, Process, Content,
Mood" or Feldmann's model,etc will also do.
