Default A simple Suggestion about the Artist Cafe.

Hi
This is Erin and I love to draw and visit the Artist Cafe.
Well I have noticed something about it.
Some people sometimes do not say very nice things about other peoples artwork.
I say Everybody has thier own style that their proud of, but when you tell them 'Oh come on you can do better' or 'Sorry I don't like it.' Just makes them judge theirselves the wrong way.
We can boost their self Esteem by telling them how good they draw.
Because most people will tell them they draw good and that is really sweet.
I suggest we take in more thought of what we talk of, about their work.
You tell them they draw good and tell them a way they could maybe make it a little more realistic or something.
That would be really thoughtful.
Take the time.
Yes your probably thinking people they do need to know what they need to improve...
But then again you might not know them, so make a person feel good.
That's what I suggest
I love to do you should to!!
~Erin

I agree, yet I disagree.

I agree because it is good getting compliments, and it does make you feel good.

I disagree because isn't a constructive critique supposed to help artists become better?

I'm thinking something like this is acceptable:
"I really think it can be a little better. *cons. crits* I still like it though, because *compliments*"

But something like this isn't:
"It's bad, can be better."

So, I see where you're going with this, and I somewhat agree. But I think something like the 'acceptable' comment above is alright to use sometimes.

Sorry if this was kinda long.

Rudeness is always unacceptable, & if you feel that someone has made a rude or mean comment, then please flag the post (next to the rep box) & a mod will look at it.

You are right, comments should be possitive. If you don't have something nice to say, then don't say anything at all.

If you don't have anything nice to say, don't say anything at all.
However...if the ask for honest criticisms, honestly tell them in a nice way what you think of their art.
Example -

Sorry, your art isn't my style. Its very nice and creative, its just not really...'me' exactly. But if you like it, that's what counts!

Your art is really cute, but I think its not my kind of stuff.

Maybe I could give you some advice! (Advice here)

Being deliberately mean is NEVER acceptable! The theatre and art community have plenty critics to do that. I am an artist and I do many forms of art. Although I can draw/paint/sculpt pieces that are very realistic, my favorite is abstract. It is more difficult to show your soul than to try to recreate what God has already done. Most people will like any art that has a continuity and balance of depth, color and texture. It is definitely ok to be honest, just make it constructive and encouraging. Often when I have a gallery opening people will say things like " Your work is beautiful but I don't understand it", or " What were you thinking of when you did this piece ". I find that most people love to attend art shows because they find the environment intriguing and stimulating.
Well, I guess I have gone on too much so good night all. Don't solve all the problems this evening.

I agree with you. It takes a lot of courage to put out on display a piece of artwork for others to look at. If people can't say something nice about it, they should probably skip it. Just remember this though, most of the art masters down through history were judged and took a lot of criticism. If you have a style that is 'you', then don't worry too much about what others say.

Default Re: A simple Suggestion about the Artist Cafe.

Well Desty I halfly agreee with you.
I care of what others say, I want to know if I'm good or not, and for someone to tell me I"m no good,(Which someone did a while many people did)
Really makes me feel like I tired for nothing.
My Parents say I deffinitly have my mind set like a artist.
Because Artist's take things deffintly , they have a lot of confidence.
I can't explain right now, maybe later but you probably know where I'm going with this,

I agree that Someone shouldnt say anything if it is going to hurt another Person. People work hard on their work & saying anything rude would be hurtful. if this ever happens I would red flag it
