An Unforgettable Critique that Can Transform Your Art Room’s Atmosphere

As a teacher, I am always looking for more ways to run critiques with my students. This video shows a great way to run a critique that brings positivity to the art room in an unexpected way. That positivity can do wonders for your classroom culture and the atmosphere amongst your students. This is especially true at this time of year as students (and teachers) are dragging toward the end of the semester. For a cheap, easy, and quick critique that is still meaningful and worthwhile, check it out!
