Second Critique

Fifth grade students participated in a second critique session, this time from their winter photography session.

Students have been using the four-step process of critiquing their photography.

Students  learn to:  describe – tell exactly what they see;  analyze – use the elements/principles to reflect upon the art form; interpret – ask what the image is trying to say; and evaluate – determine how successful or important the photograph is.

The fifth graders enjoyed participating in this hands-on method of photographic critiquing.
