Art this year is no longer an O, S, or U grade. That means a great grade can positively affect a student's grade point average:)
If a student would not turn in a project on or before a due date, a "z" (also known as a 0%) will be inserted for the grade until the project is turned in. Once the project is turned in, the student can receive most of the deserved points.
Students will be graded on the use of Elements of Art and Principles of Design (which will be taught), craftsmanship/techniques, creativity, effort, use of time, participation, use of art vocabulary, ability to follow directions, and tests.
Art has rules - Come on time and be prepared, properly use and clean the materials, be creative and imaginative, clean up after yourself, and respect everybody in the class.
Students will be given ample time to complete class projects and homework. If more time is needed, ask for more time. I appreciate it if class projects are not taken home to complete, unless I say it is approved. Sketch assignments will most likely be done at home.
