A Critique Of Another Kind

As probably most of you know, I come from a line of artists.  My mother, Olivia Schemanski, is an artist, and her father before her also an artist.  Not surprisingly my son shows great promise of artistic talent.  What he does with that is his choice of course.  So in the new age of computers and blogs, I've attempted to create a place where art, technique and inspiration can be discussed.

"The word critic comes from the Greek κριτικός (kritikós), "able to discern"[1], which in turn derives from the word κριτής (krités), meaning a person who offers reasoned judgment or analysis, value judgment, interpretation, or observation[2]. The term can be used to describe an adherent of a position disagreeing with or opposing the object of criticism." - From Wikipedia

Another major piece of the artistic, and really any aspect of anything creative is an ample supply of criticism.  I know, I know, who wants to hear about the "bad" points of anything you've worked so hard to create. Without some constructive thoughts, our potential cannot be reached.  Proper criticism holds the key to advance our works far beyond what we can accomplish in our studio.

Well, let me introduce you to Critical Round-Up.  A modern critical blog about not only art, but that which is creative and inspires us to be.  Check out this informative blog, become a follower, and put in your two cents.... heck, you should leave a quarters worth!

Till next time.....
