Janice Mason Art Museum Four Steps in Art Criticism Being able to critique art by utilizing the art elements, principles of design, and correct terminology is very important for students. To assist students in being successful in this endeavor, we are including a four step process for art criticism. These are valuable questions that can be used to critique any piece of art. If you use these four steps and answer questions listed under each, you will have a comprehensive method to critique any piece of art. This process will take some time for students to learn and be comfortable using. Results will be better if you display a piece of art and then work one section at a time, such as “describe”. Describe : Tell what you see (the visual facts). 1. What is the name of the artist who created the artwork? 2. What kind of an artwork is it? 3. What is the name of the artwork? 4. When was the artwork created? 5. Name some other major events in history that occurred at the same time this artwork was created. 6. List the literal objects in the painting (trees, people, animals, mountains, rivers, etc.).
