High [9th-12th] Lesson Plan

The Final: Artist Statement and Critique

Created on April 19, 2021 by paintpeace

An Organizer to help students develop a written Artist Statement, which includes a Critique of their own work. It can be used to structure an essay, a slide show or an oral presentation. I designed this as a Final Project, that students would base on three completed artworks from their art class.
