Fun in Art Class
- We can listen to music if everyone continues working productively

- We will be watching some fun video clips

- We can be creative and if you have any ideas you would like to try let me know and we can discuss them

- We will have seating charts so I can start to remember everyone's name and if we need them but I like it when we can sit where we want during work time!
Procedures for Art Class
- Come to class prepared to work, with good attitudes, and materials ready.

_ Everyone should be seated when I take attendance.

- We will go over what we should be doing at the beginning of each class
- If you have questions raise your hand and I will come around and answer them
- I will have written instructions on the board each day with any information you need to know.

- Art class is NOT the time to gossip and chat with friends. We are here to work and we need to be in our right brains when we create art!

- At the last 5 minutes of class we will have time to clean up areas. Help a neighbor if you are done with your area. (Remind Me!)

I have seen you using your class time wisely and
you usually turn your work in on time. (if I see that you are talking/wasting your art time and if you usually turn in homework/projects in late then you will not get an extension)

Must participate
in class discussions and critiques to get an A. This means, no matter how good of an "artist" you are you still need to participate to get a good grade.

Extra credit may be done if approved first, and also must be seen by the teacher as it is in progress, BUT ONLY if all other work has been completed.

Works may consist of additional art assignments in any medium and/or reports
demonstrations to the class
research papers on art related topics

An extra credit project may increase your lowest grade up to a 10% improvement.

- In
cases you will be allowed to work on other homework if you
ask me first.
- On days we have extra class time we will go over vocabulary and objectives from the lesson.

- Everyone is to be seated until the bell rings. There will be NO lining up at the door!

- If everyone behaves and has done a good job in class I may let the class go early.

Lets Make Some RULES
If you have any questions about me just ask...I'm an open book!
Art is NEVER finished
If we have a critique or you hand in your work and you get a comment from me or a classmate or if you just see something that you would like to fix or add, DO IT! And then turn it back in to me with a note attached so I can adjust your grade.
Art is never finished, only abandoned.
—Leonard da Vinci
