Art Critiques and Reflections

This is an introduction to art reflection and art critique. I explain that art reflection is looking at your own art and art critique is looking at others art. I find this is a 'kid' friendly way to explain it. We are finishing up our trading cards for Indiana, USA. The kids got in a group of three and first talk about their own art. Then they switched their group of three and explained their artwork to a new group. We repeated this process 4 or so times. Then they found yet another group and this time talked about each others work. It was fun to hear that they were proud, nervous, shy, excited... to talk about their art and others. I even heard one kid say they felt like the teacher looking at other work... and that was fun:)


  1. Good way to approach it. My 4th-graders are asking when they will get their ATCs. Any thoughts I can share with them?

  2. I can't wait to try this! I just wish I had the floor space you do.
