Re: [teacherartexchange] Critique ?

I'm not sure if this is what you're asking for, but my students wrote a
very short, three-part critique for each assignment.

1. Select a work of art you think was successful. Describe what makes
it successful, based on the criteria for the assignment.
2. Select a work of art you think needs improvement. Give the artist
some concrete ideas for improving his/her work. [note: Students knew
better than to write something like, "It sucks."]
3. Write about your own work. What do you think you did well, and what
do you think would you improve it?

Of course I have some ideas but I am looking for some suggestions. You all are the best and I am sure I am overlooking something :-) Thanks for any help!
