Critique is a discussion strategy used to describe, analyze, and interpret works of art. In this 2 session workshop, participating artists will submit their work for review by the instructor and fellow workshop artists. The focus is on constructive criticism, defined as the process of offering well-reasoned opinions with the intention of helping the artist. Artists will receive documentation of the work shown each meeting.
Workshops are taught online through Zoom and Canvas. Students will need a computer or smart phone with webcam and microphone, internet and web streaming capacity, and the Zoom application installed to their device. A device to capture images (digital camera, smart phone, or tablet, etc.) is helpful, but not required.
