Art Criticism Checksheet

The Art Criticism Checksheet is a reproducible handout that can be used with students to facilitate their critical thinking about art. It has four sections, (Describe, Analyze, Interpret, and Evaluate) that build in complexity and skill level. Teachers can decide to give students some information before they begin the art criticism process, or have students fill out the form using their observation skills alone. Younger students might only fill out the first three sections, while older students will benefit from the written expressions required in the Evaluation section.
