Simple Student Evaluation- Make a Point

The Critique

Critiquing your own art work is a big part of becoming a better artist. It helps you to see what you've done well and what you need to work on. I know the kids don't like to do it. At least that's what they always tell me. But it is big part of the artistic process. How will you ever get better? You need to take an honest look at what you have created.  The good, the bad and the ugly.

Make a Point

Here is one part of my critique process. I call it the 'Point Sheet.' It helps them to begin to make judgments about their art work. And practice their writing skills.

The students have to look at their art work and make two points about it. The first point is what they are proud of in their art work- called 'A Point of Pride.' The second point is what they need to work on a little more- called 'A Point of Polish.'

This is a simple, little worksheet that gets students thinking about what works and what needs to be improved in their art work.

Do you have a critique process you use? How do you have the students evaluate their work? I'd like to hear from you.
