    • Arrive on time, prepared for class, and save questions until after directions are given. 
    • Be a worker. Students must create their own work.
    • Respect others and property. No hurtful comments or inappropriate language. Take care of all art materials and use tools correctly to keep the art room safe.
    • Follow the rubric given for assignments and always put your name, the date, and your homeroom teacher’s name on the back of your projects.


    Grading Policy for 1st - 4th:

    Your art showed very little craftsmanship/creativity. 

    Very few (if any) directions and goals were followed/met.


    ***4th Grade will be given rubrics with most of their projects and the grading for those projects will be explained on each specific rubric. 


    Grading Policy for 5th-8th:

    Students will be graded on a points scale. Each assignment will be worth a certain number of points and the student will receive those points based on the rubric for that specific project.  Projects, Quizzes, Homework, and Personal and Social Responsibility make up the final grade. Each week students will earn a check plus, check, or check minus for their personal and social responsibility points. Students can earn a check or check minus if they are not on time and prepared, if they are not completing assignments to the best of their ability, if they are not using time wisely to complete assignments, or if they are not following classroom or school rules. At the end of the quarter, the total number of points earned is divided by the number of possible points and a final grade is determined.



  • Homework:

    5th-8th - Always bring a black permanent marker (preferably a fine point and an ultra fine point) to art class. I recommend writing your name on your Sharpies with another Sharpie. 

    4th Grade - Please bring in a roll of plain tin foil by Monday 10/28 or Tuesday 10/29 (depending on what day they have art).
