Critiquing I found especially learned about it in art school revolves around reviewing and giving feedback about the technical and aesthetic features of any form of a medium that can be judged. I found that there is also an opinion that is given that makes the critique more personal. In the past I have reviewed and critiqued other's artist's and writers work and I cannot help myself but state my own opinion about how I feel about the entire work and how I would strike my attention to want more. Do you get personal with your critiques, whether it is good or bad, and do you judge based upon only technical and aesthetic qualities. Personally I like to give my honest opinion if I want to read more of the story or if it does not interest me because of the technical/aesthetic qualities. Then I offer suggestions that the writer could or could not use. I understand that critiques are always in a matter of opinion and some people take it personally. I can understand that and I have learned to let it go. I also understand that some critiques can be taken too far and cause anger and conflict. (In school I have seen two students verbally fighting over the color of a girl's lipstick in a photograph). When critiquing what is your opinion about the use of personal opinion and does it help at all or does it cause conflict?
