Every student, every artwork, and every art critique is different. Art students have their own challenges as participants in a group critique, how do you speak articulately about your own artwork?
This video provides the opportunity to watch a group critique within a class and to see how various scenarios and dynamics can play out during a class critique. Also featuring Art Prof Teaching Artists Lauryn Welch, Cat Huang, and Casey Roonan.
Prof Lieu’s Tips
Critiques are tricky; some critique comments can really sting in a way that can make you shut down. (I’ve had plenty like that myself) On the other hand, sometimes it’s those very blunt comments that light a fire under you butt and motivate you to do more!
I have logged decades of experience leading critiques and receiving them, and even then, it’s always a delicate balance that I’m constantly working on.
