During class, we worked through the ‘Critical Response Protocol’ to discuss and dig into a painting (this painting, to be specific). Here’s a link to the home page for that protocol, where you can read more about it, and download the handout (pdf format).

This tool, and related resources, were developed by the Minneapolis Public Schools.

Note, if you describe or share this resource, people may confuse it with the Critical Response Process developed by choreographer/artist Liz Lerman. This is a different process, for a different purpose (helping artists to get productive feedback on their work-in-progress). It’s also cool. But different.
