About This Site

Purpose:
CritiqueMyArtwork.com is a social networking website for artists where they can receive constructive criticism from other artists. In addition, by reading critiques of other artwork and learning ways to evaluate art, an artist's work will improve through self-critique of their own artwork. Photographs of an artist's work may be posted for a public critique or private group critique. High School and College students may post their artwork for free.
How To Get Started:
To post or critique artwork, a person must first register by clicking on the ‘Log In’ link in the upper right, then click the ‘Register’ link. A user may then critique other user's artwork, rating the artwork and providing a constructive comment. A user may upload a photo of their own artwork to be critiqued and optionally include 5 additional photos related to that piece of artwork. Each post costs only $1 and a new user automatically gets credit for 5 free posts. Users that post their artwork for public critique will be rewarded 1 "Post Credit" for each 10 paid, public postings.
Brochure / Presentation:
Here is a great brochure handout for yourself or for your class or art group.
Here is a PowerPoint presentation (as a PDF) for your class or art group.
How To Critique:
A good critique is both supportive and helpful to the artist. It should not be judgmental or negative. The artwork can be evaluated on composition, the usage of art elements (line, shape, value, color, texture) and the art principles (balance, unity, rhythm, variety, emphasis, contrast ). Expound on the feeling conveyed by the artwork. Describe what the artwork means to you, and why. Explain where you feel the artwork has strong value and where you think it falls short. Kindly suggest small changes you think would improve the artwork and why. It is also helpful to answer any of the artist’s questions that were included with the artist’s posting of their artwork. Remember that the level of your comments and suggestions should be tempered by the artist’s experience level.
