We all have our favorite critics—the go-to voice we listen to when we want to know which movie to see, book to read, or album to buy. But these critics are more than just opinion-generators.
How does one eloquently, fairly, and adequately consider, judge, and describe a work that someone else has created? A well written critique to a work of art requires deep thought and understanding of how it is we judge and consume the piece of art itself.
In this course we will learn how to carefully analyze and properly criticize a work of art in any medium. And by the end, you will be confident in that thumbs up or thumbs down you give in your next review!
