How to Write a Critique

The ability to "criticize" a piece of art is really several things - reading or watching with an eye for detail AND a sense of the whole picture at once; forming a clear opinion...and being able to defend it; coming up with ideas for how it might be changed or improved; and combining all of those things into a message that is creative and interesting for readers. Exploring the resources on this page will help you build your critique-writing skills.
