My first semester at college, January 1991, I had a 2D art class. The first
assignment, which was to rough sketch works by Renoir, Degas, etc., was
totally, completely, and utterlt TRASHED by my professor IN FRONT OF
EVERYONE IN THE CLASS. I was humiliated and dropped the course, never to
take another traditional art class. I am now happily an art
history/aesthetics major. In high school, however, I loved doing critiques
after completing a project. Guess why? Because "we" the class critiqued
each others work. It's nice to hear you did a good job from the teacher but
even better from one of your peers. And surprisingly, it was very
constructive criticism like, "I love the colors you choose, but I think it
needs more demension." Comments along those lines really encouraged instead
of hindered our work. Besides it was fun discussing the how's, why's and
what if's about each others ideas.
