Here are the guidelines:
Theses critiques are to provide helpful feedback to artists' works that are in progress or completed, by telling the artist NOT WHAT YOU LIKE OR DON'T LIKE, but by:
-simply telling the artist what you SEE...
-by perhaps describing and analyzing HOW you perceive the overall structure/composition of the work; what part of the piece 'works', what part might not be 'working', i.e. strengths and weaknesses...
-by interpreting the meaning, content, expression, artist's intention, etc.for the work as conveyed through its formal visual language...
-by offering feedback on quality of craftsmanship
