Goals:

  • 3.1Ac: Engage in constructive critique with peers, then reflect on, re-engage, revise, and refine works of art and design in response to personal artistic vision.
  • If you are struggling with adding to the conversation, what is ONE THING you are afraid of? Fear is fine too… If you find yourself an ACTIVE critique, what do you find about yourself that makes it EASY to add to the conversation?

Reflection / Evaluation: Two things you feel you can go back to and fix in your drawing to demonstrate a stronger feel of mastery in the work? Why do you feel it worthwhile to reflect / re-engage / refine the work that is in front of you?
