1st Grade Critiques

Critiques are important in the Art Studio and the art learning process. Formats of critiques are changed to fit the developmental level of the students's age and grade level. In this latest 1st grade critique, students talked about how each classmate used texture in their mixed media drawing. They also pointed out aspects of each piece of art that turned out well and aspects that need improvement.
