Analyzing and verbalizing what works and what doesn’t is what’s important. Don’t judge your Â�observations as right or wrong; offer them honestly. • Critique is not personal; don’t make it that way. Direct Â�comments toward the work produced and presented, not at the person who made it. • Ask questions of the artist whenever necessary to facilitate your own understanding.

Critique is about the work you’ve done and the progress you’ve made, not about you personally. Although it’s your work being critiqued, remember that everyone in the group learns from the discussion. • Critique isn’t intended to make you feel good or bad; it’s intended to help you learn and grow by indicating areas in need of improvement and celebrating accomplishments and successes.
