Art Critiquing through VoiceThread
In the culminating activity, you will create a lesson where students research for artwork based on a theme. The students will collect three pieces of art and use the art critiquing process to explain why they chose those pieces. They will finalize this project using a Voice Thread.
What is a VoiceThread- If you are a K-12 educator you can create a VoiceThread account for you and your classroom for free.
