    Hi OP! What you can do is to follow my formula : positive , negative , positive. Start by pointing out what you like. Then give them a run down of what you don't like . Finally finish it off by telling them how they an improve positively. For example "Great idea adding in that cat" "I think you could have positioned it further left to leave room for the window to show through. That way the composition will be more pleasing" "overall, good job but try next time to keep your composition in mind as your placing things in the painting@

    "Complimenting" doesn't belong anywhere in a teaching environment.

    Research "criticism", particularly "constructive criticism" for further information.

      It does in my case. My company promotes painting in casual environments to first timers . The goal is to let people see that everyone can be artistic and everyone can try their hand at art. I like to compliment people on the positives of their work ...." I like the shade you mixed here" or "that design you added really hit the spot!"

      Let me repeat: CONSTRUCTIVE CRITICISM

      and you apparently have all the answers anyway. So just make up something. ANYTHING.

    useful criticism they wont learn to be better if they don't know what they need to improve. be sensitive but honest

      But if I honest, they might get offended and not try again - not everyone takes a criticism well. If I say "well I think the color you chose here was a bit dark and that made this part of the painting look a little gloomy alongside your other colors", they may take it as "I suck, I'm terrible at choosing colors, why did I even bother trying "

      CONSTRUCTIVE CRITICISM

      Wow that's completely rude ... being anonymous does not give you the right to criticize someone online asking a serious question and doubting their credibility ! Everyone has a right to ask questions - how else can we improve? OP don't be offended please by rude people online. Yes constructive criticism is good but also remember that not everyone wants your advice to them. Don't force yourself to say things you don't want to
