Checking for

Formative assessments are ways for me to check if we are meeting our learning goals.

They help me to be a better teacher and they help you to understand more about your learning, making YOU a better student.

Weekly Progress - 40%
Projects - 30%
Exams - 15%

Trash Cans
Now where is...?
Depending on materials, you will begin clean up 5-10 minutes prior to dismissal bell. I will do my best to remind you when to start cleaning up. Early clean-up affects weekly progress grade.

Put supplies away in appropriate places. Store artwork in art lockers/shelves. Clean sinks/counters/tables/floor.

Stay at your seat/table until bell rings.
Remember to push in your stools before you leave!

What are our
Learning Goals for today?
About Me
Cell phone/electronic device usage other than for academic purposes or to listen to music! Acceptable use policy must be signed and turned in prior to any use.
Food or drink other than water in spill-proof bottle.
Peace signs, hearts, smiley faces, ying/yangs or any other overused symbol; be original, be creative!
Cards, notes, name signs, paper airplanes.
Inappropriate images, words, etc. in artwork.
Hanging around the door at the end of class.
Throwing away any projects, must be taken home. If found in any trash on school property, a 0% will replace your project grade.

One of the best ways to communicate growth of student learning is through a portfolio. Each student will be expected to develop and maintain a digital art portfolio that includes photos of all finished projects and sketchbook assignments. You will be using a digital portfolio template found in Google Classroom.

Students will:

1. Understand classroom rules, procedures and expectations.

2. Understand why art is important!

Erase it
Look again: Is it your best work?
Make sure your name is on the back of your artwork
Put your finished artwork in your art locker/shelf
If you are using paint or glue, put your work in the drying rack
Work on any incomplete projects/assignments/sketchbooks
Read a book from the art library
Draw from art starts or activity sheets
Your Peers
Our Room
and Materials
Your Art
Respect their
opinions, feelings, space,
materials, and artwork.
Treat others how you
would like to be
Your Teacher
I will give you respect
and expect to receive it
in return. When I'm
teaching, your eyes are
on me, voices are off and bodies are still.
Give your best effort!!!
Also, you WILL NOT throw
away your art, if you
100% do not want it,
give it to me.
Please treat them as if they are your own. Use them appropriately and clean them when finished.
You should respect:
While in the art classroom, you will be expected to:
Be Safe:
Use tools safely and properly
Walk in the classroom
Sit in stools appropriately
Serious and severe offenses will be immediately referred to the principal with consequences outlined in student handbook.
If you choose to not follow the rules:
1. Warning
2. Behavior Tracking

What if I have a question?

End of Class
HS students will have their own art locker to store sketchbooks, pencils, handouts, etc. HS students will share a shelf to store projects, etc. Your name will be listed on your locker and shelf. Unless you ask permission from the owner, do NOT get into other’s lockers or shelf.
Art Lockers/Shelves
Classroom Entry
When you get to class, quietly enter the classroom, get materials out and begin working on project or assignment.

Use the restroom and get a drink before art class. You must have your own planner and fill out for me to sign prior to you leaving classroom. You cannot leave during any instruction or demonstration.
Drying Rack

Exit Tickets
Color Wheel
Activity Sheets
Art Starts
In order for you to be able to use a cell phone/electronic device for educational purposes in ART, you must get parent/guardian permission and sign the Acceptable Use Policy.
Google Classroom will be an important part of your ART class this year. We will be using this learning management system to house all our important documents: syllabus, curriculum, classroom rules/procedures/expectations, etc. All projects will be on Google Classroom and we will also be using this tool to complete some of our weekly activities: art journals, compare/contrast, art critiques, and more! You will be given a classroom code to join the Google Classroom for ART soon! Stay tuned!
