Now that the NCAA March Madness tournament will soon be upon us, it's the time of year for my favorite art critiquing activity! With my 3rd graders, I do an Art Madness tourny where, over a course of two days, students vote on their favorite artists and defend their decisions.
Here is a detailed write-up I did last year for the Art Class Curator that talks about how I run it in my classroom!
For those of you looking to try it in your classroom, here is the link to my Google Drive that has the PowerPoints that I have used over the last four years for the event! The themes include Pop Artists, Street Artists, Contemporary Female Artists, and Contemporary Black Artists.
