Artmaking Goals

To set artmaking goals, translate personal content into visual form informed by the research and issues of audience and personal goals. Decide and clarify the audience you want to reach and make art that achieves communicating to that audience. Then strive for the best you can do. Reach for excellence.

Judy asks the participants, “How do you make work that is accessible, but not simplistic?” What criteria should be used to evaluate your art?
