An art critique is an evaluation of a work of art. While it is true that artistic taste is relative, there are certain characteristics of artwork that can be assessed as a means of measuring the artist's success at conveying the intended message or meaning of the work in question. Art criticism is considered by some to be an art within itself, but, although each art critique may approach a work of art uniquely, there is a defined protocol for the discipline of critiquing a work of art. You do not have to be an art history buff or museum curator to learn how to critique artwork. Just follow the steps shared in our FREE How to Critique Art work app.
