STICKY NOTE CRITIQUES:
Each person will receive as many sticky notes as there are students. For the first part of the critique artist will only listen and not talk.
We will start by talking about content! Students will describe what they see. Color, shape, line, texture, formal elements. What medium is it made of? Size? Ground? (Not what it means, just what is physically there)
Write down what the work reminds you of on your stick note.
Context. What does the work remind you of? Does it relate to any art movement? History? What conversation is the piece part of?
Students will write down what themes or topics are present on their sticky notes. (words about the work like nostalgic, dark, comforting, memory, death, etc.)
What themes do you notice in the work? What questions do you have about it? What pieces are you drawn to or parts of the piece? Does the piece look finished? Why or why not? How do the materials used to make the piece relate to the content? Is there anything taking away from the piece?
Now the artist can speak! Questions for the artist: What was your process. Why did you make the decisions you did? What were successes or challenges? How does the piece relate to your last work? What research did you do?
