MATERIAL(S) FOR ASSIGNMENT:
Critiquing artwork goes beyond what is considered good and bad. It includes the discussion of “why”. Why did the artist use the media they did? Why is the color, perspective, or layout displayed the way it is? Why did the artist attempt to communicate what they did? In this case, “criticism” isn’t necessarily sharing a negative opinion, instead it is thinking critically and asking questions to further our understanding and appreciation of art. As Gardner (1989) states, of all forms of criticism, the criticism of art is the most crucial to the existence and vitality of it’s subject. Movies, literature, and music all certainly benefit from the added critical coverage, but all would most likely survive through word of mouth and general exposure. However, without art criticism, galleries and museums would still be open, and exhibitions would still take place, but would do so without the critical feedback that is so vital for it’s advancement.

********INSTRUCTIONS FOR ASSIGNMENT:********
Write a FAQ (Frequently Asked Questions) document for each work of art that includes the question and answer. The Q&A must be filled out completely for Artwork #1-4. Questions could be regarding the media being used, why the work is significant, history of the work/artist, etc. Answers should not be “yes” or “no” responses, but instead should display your skills related to critical thinking, analysis, and interpretation of the artwork. Upon completion of the FAQ, choose one of the pieces of artwork and write a 1 page critique. This art criticism is where you go beyond description and offer an informed opinion about the work. Your critique should interpret meaning and include critical judgments about the specific work of art. FAQ and Critique
