The Critique Handbook
Appropriate for use in critique at any level-from the beginner to the advanced student. Its uniqueness and universal application in visual arts curriculum make The Critique Handbook an excellent introduction for beginners and a valuable resource for more experienced students. This text was written to address an existing gap in the literature pertaining to the study of art. Although the critique is central to all art programs, there have been no textbooks or comprehensive guides that deal with this important instructional tool. The Critique Handbook fills the need for such a book. Quotes: "The Critique Handbook is a well organized and useful text. Most immediately useful - and inventive - are the exercises toward the back of the book." Stu Thompson, Ph.D. Professor of Art Seton Hill University
