I have used a game with all levels (K-12) for critique. I made up packets
containing "game tokens". Each game token is as follows:

Money = this artwork cost the most $
Clock= this artwork took the most time to make
Blue Ribbon = this artwork would win a prize
Smiley Face= I like this one the most
House = my parents would hang this one in their living room
"No" Symbol = I really don't like this one
X = this artwork was the hardest to make

I used clip art and mass copied it on colored paper, laminated it, and cut
out the pieces. I only use this game for famous artworks. Students vote by
placing the appropriate tokens with the artworks they go with. You do not
have to use all the tokens, but must use X number of them. This game is a
non-threatening way to begin teaching students how to critique an artwork,
or to add spice to critiques for those more experienced. I love the
discussions that inevitably spark up! I also find it intriguing how the kids
will dislike an artwork that they feel their parents would hang in their
homes! *L* Does anyone have any ideas for other tokens?
