A.) What I knew about art criticism when I started this class was basically nothing because I never really like art or the thought of it because I've always been so bad at drawing and I thought all you would do in art is draw. I was kind of comfortable with evaluating the art of others. I only understood the ones that were political art , but other ones that had a deep meaning to them I could never figure out the meaning without someone telling me. Especially if they were from a different culture that I didn't know much of because sometimes they do art based on there culture.
B.) My understanding of art critism is probably the thing I've understood the most during this class because before i didn't really know about it . Therefore I learned about it in this class and kept learning more about it during the class . The way art critism changed in this class when I make or view art is that we could actually have the opportunity to tell the artist what we liked about there art and also had the chance to see what people liked about my art work.
A.) Some important or useful things I learned in this class were how to mix acrylic paint together to make all kinds of different colors and shade of colors and that helped a lot because I used paint a lot in this class . I learned different techniques of water color painting which didn't really come in handy in this class because I didn't use it but it might in the future . I learned how to draw in first and second point perspective which really helped so much because it helped me draw a little better and it was easier for me .
