Critique paper requirement:

(pass/ fail assignment)

Type a half page paper critique, stating YOUR OPINIONS about the work, artist, venue. Speak about certain works, and the artist’s bodies of work as a whole.

MUST include a “selfie” where I can see you are at the exhibition/ lecture. You are able to insert a picture into a Word Document, using insert picture.

Enjoy the adventure of learning about other artist’s works, seeing them in person, and/ or hearing an artist speak. This is how we grow as visual communicators. Going with your family or a few friends will provide a much more intimate experience than going as an entire class. Take time to look. Bring your sketchbook, and make sketches/ studies, and/or take notes.
