Critique & Critical Awareness

This Guide offers resources that speak to the theory and practice of critique with particular attention towards the goal of increasing critical awareness.

The Critique

The School of the Art Institute of Chicago (SAIC) encourages engaged learning and deems the critique the most valuable assessment tool for artists. Critiques provide excellent preparation for life at all stages by fostering the ability to explain ideas, process feedback, and work collaboratively. The resources found on this page discuss the theory and practice of critique through an Art & Design Higher Education lens.
