Transcript of Middle School Art First Day of Class

Your job is to learn about and practice art. We may do some things you love and some you don’t, but keep a positive attitude! Try everything with your best effort.
Art Room Class Rules
Earn a
journal grade
based on completion of daily sketchbook assignments. Begin immediately upon entering the room without being told.
Late work
loses a letter grade.
The only other
extra credit
given will be if you choose to attempt an artist bio research project, worth up to 20 points
3 pts Daily for Participation. If you don't DO you LOSE (start with 100 & points are subtracted)
Your grade is based on your
. If you try, you can’t fail!
Your projects will be graded with a rubric.
If work is COMPLETE and turned in ON TIME, your grade starts at 50
, and you earn 50 additional points based on composition, craftsmanship, demonstrating technique, and meeting assignment criteria.
If work is turned in but INCOMPLETE, your grade is a 50 or lower - no additional points.
What's My Grade?
When Class Starts...
Bring your sketchbook & pencil to class every day.

Backpacks, binders, etc. go under your chair or by the library-- no tripping hazards!

An assignment will be on the board daily. Get started without direction. I DO give you a daily grade for this!

Once you come in, you may not leave without a pass. Bathroom is available first & last 5 minutes, NOT during work time.
Pre-planning is important! Brainstorm, make thumbnail sketches, doodle. Always sketch with a pencil first. If you make a mistake, figure out how to make it work.

You may
go into the storage closet or cabinets without permission.

Put away supplies when you are finished with them. If you make a mess, it's OK; I'll only be mad if you don't clean up after yourself. Nobody wants to start class with dirty supplies.

Be mindful of how much you are using. Start with small amounts of paint, yarn, glue, etc.-- you can always get more if you need it.
Work is due IN THE BASKET by the due date (late work -10 pts). (Wet work turned in the following day)
Work may be turned in early.
It is YOUR responsibility to make sure it is turned in! I do not touch or move work.
When you turn in a 2D art project, make sure your name is written clearly on the back. Do NOT write huge or press hard- it may affect the front of the page.

Artists sign their work. Yours should be, too. Autograph the bottom right corner with your name and the year. The signature should not be distracting or legible from a distance.
Look over your work. Make sure it’s A+ material before you turn it in. When in doubt, ask a friend.
It's OK to clean up early if your work is done.
There are things to do & read on the bookshelf.
You can work in your sketchbook.
Whatever you decide to do is fine with me, as long as you STAY IN YOUR SEAT and DO NOT DISTURB OTHERS!
Now what?
Last 5 Minutes
Everyone should work together to clean up the room, but take responsibility for your own mess.
Taking care of your space will be part of your Participation grade. You will lose 1 point every day that someone else has to clean up behind you.
When your table is clean, you may sit and talk until the end of class.
Do not stand by the door
When you are dismissed, push your chairs under the table, or put chairs up (7th per.)
Have a great quarter!
Ms. F
Proud of Achieving
remember why you are here
. Listen to directions without talking, don't be a distraction to others. We are LEARNING!
Organizing for Success
: keep supplies & workspace neat
Working for a Safe Environment
: use supplies responsibly, no running
Learning to Lead
: set a good example, avoid plagiarism, help others, don't be afraid to be different! WEIRD IS GOOD!
I will remind you when it's almost time for the bell. Don't wait until the last minute!
Your grade is based on the
that you earn this quarter.
