  1. User-Friendly art critique process – questions give me a good start on how to critique the work. The judgement and comparison part makes you think about the artwork before you design it, which is why it should never be for the dollars, but for the emotions and feelings put into it.

    Vocabulary to critique art – I found it to be very helpful because it had words and definitions for pieces of art. These works would help me in giving more accurate descriptions of art when I am critiquing it, or if I want to create something.

    Critique essay writing simplified – It breaks things down into simple steps. These steps will help me avoid getting confused when I’m writing the essay.
