This lesson is about judging the worth of an artwork, not in the financial sense, but through the lens of art criticism. We will first judge artwork by using the first three steps of art criticism, evaluating whether the work is successful because it is realistic, or if it has a good composition, or if it conveys mood or meaning. We will then judge artwork based on our personal feelings. A work of art may have no value to one person but mean the world to someone else. Afterward, each student will critique an artwork using the four steps of art criticism that we have used throughout this course.
Students will sort and manipulate images of famous artworks during this session.
