This year I will be teaching Art 1 Major and Minor, Art 4 Major Minor and Digital Art 1. I hope you find your art classes interesting and fulfilling, as well an opportunity to try new things and explore new mediums.
1st day of school questionnaire: Please take a look at the following questions and respond to them via email to me (firstname.lastname@example.org)
1. What would you like me to call you? 2. What, when and where was your last art class? 3. What do you hope to learn this year? 4. How do you learn best...what is your learning style? 5. What is something you'd like me to know about you?
CLASS EXPECTATIONS In order for us to have a positive and productive art experience this year, the following expectations must be met:
Respect for materials: Use tools and materials as demonstrated, clean materials and workspaces properly, and return materials to their designated spaces. Respect for each other’s work: Refrain from touching someone else’s work without their permission, offer supportive and constructive feedback. Respect for each other’s ideas and identities: Make sure the room is an emotionally safe space for all who enter, or, the “golden rule”: treat others as you wish to be treated. Respect for classroom rules and manners When you're in the art room, you work on art! Please don't work on homework from another class.
-NO FOOD OR DRINK EXCEPT WATER BOTTLES.
You will be given a weekly grade out of 10 points for class participation. This grade will be based on your work ethic, timeliness, and demonstration of respect.
School policies on attendance apply to the art room.
School policies on iPad and cell phone use apply to the art room as well.
You will also be evaluated on the effort you put into the following categories for each assignment: -Time on task- how well you use your class time -Craftsmanship/demonstration of learned techniques to the best of your ability -Conceptual development/creativity/self-challenge -Class Critique/Student Reflection
