An art critique exercise I have that is really fun and engaging is asking students to be art buyers. I tell them that they are in the market for a work of art. They must estimate how much a series of paintings cost and back up their answers. If they say a painting is worth a million dollars, they need to tell me something art historical or critical to explain their answer. You can use fake money and set up a gallery walk to really give the exercise more interest.
