Riaugus,
Yes, your idea makes sense. Here are 5 things they should discuss.
DESCRIBE
1. Describe what you see in the art work. (people, buildings. animals,
flowers, plants, landscapes, still life, etc.)

ANALYSIS
2. Describe the various art elements seen in the work. (Line, Shape, Color,
Texture, Value, Space)

INTERPRETATION
3. How does it make you feel? Why?
4. Describe other works in your book that remind you of this work.

JUDGMENT
5. Do you like the work? Why or why not? Would you hang it in your home? Why
or why not?

Fun game idea for Critique.
In the Mississippi Fine Arts Framework packet, I found a neat idea in
one of the Competencies. They suggest;

Divide class into groups. Give each group a reproduction of a famous artwork.
Have students develop a "Siskel and Ebert" type of skit expressing positive
and negative views of the work. Students should use appropriate vocabulary
and the concepts of organizational elements and principles.
Good Luck
