Writing and Talking about Art
The purpose of this webpage is to not only digitally display student work, but to also teach students how to write and talk about their artwork. Throughout the semester, students will be writing artist statements to go with their artwork. We will be using the chart below to help us write our statements. This chart is based on the four components of art criticism (describe, analyze, interpret, and judge). When talking to your children about their artwork, ask them the questions listed below to guide them into being reflective artists.
