You are required to have notebook paper, a pencil, and a black gel pen. It is your responsibility to be ready for class each day. I will not supply these things for you! The media center has black gel pens,sharpies, and pencils for sale!!!
1. Enter the room quietly, immediately get out a piece of notebook paper, and write and answer the Warm-Up on the notebook paper. 2. Write your EQ (Essential Question) in your Agenda and have your Agenda open on your desk ready to be signed.
3. ALWAYS clean up after yourself! 4. Write your name on your artwork and turn it into the appropriate location. 5. The teacher, NOT the bell, will dismiss you at the end of the class.
1. Talk quietly during class when the teacher is not talking. 2. Look for the quiet signal and listen when instructions are given the first time. 3. Keep your hands to yourself.
4. Please respect the Art materials! 5. Stay seated unless otherwise instructed. DO YOUR BEST!
When you come into the classroom, you have exactly five minutes to complete the Warm-Up before I begin class. You are to begin each Warm- Up with the date, the actual Warm-Up, and then your answer. Try to write all of your Warm-Up for the week on the same page. On Friday, you will turn in your weekly page of Warm-Ups to be graded.
When a teacher is talking, wait to raise your hand until she/ he is finished speaking, and then, raise your hand to ask your question. If you need art materials, I choose helpers based on behavior to help me distribute materials, papers, and click Power points each week. Only one person to a chair.
If you finish you work early, then you may review your vocabulary or if you are in the upstairs art-room, you may raise your hand to get up and go over and draw a drawing idea out of the idea jar or if you are in the downstairs art- room, you may ask for a drawing idea packet. You may not do homework or other schoolwork without prior approval. If someone enters the room, there should not be a sound in this room. Keep all personal items such as lotions, combs, perfumes, brushes, lip glosses, ipods, and additional clothing accessories such as hats out of the art room. Anything inappropriate that is brought into the Art room may be confiscated till the end of the day.
Approximately seven minutes before its time to leave we will clean up. No one leaves till the room is clean. No running in the classroom. No drawing on the tables, walls, cabinets, or countertops. If you feel like you are about to be ill, please just go to the restroom. Quiet conversations with classmates at your table are acceptable, but table to table conversations are unacceptable.
You are not allowed in the closet or the office in the back of the art room or anywhere behind my desk. If we use tools that can be considered contraband, you are not allowed to take them outside of the art room or use them for anything than their otherwise intended use!! All of your drawings must be APPROPRIATE!
It is Douglas County School System School Board Policy that you are to dress appropriately for school.

Failure to do so will result in more demerits.
Any student who receives 3 or more demerits will not be participating in the ceramics project with the class. That student will have an alternative ceramic reading assignment, but they will NOT get to put their hands on clay. So, if you get your third demerit in my class, you know you have forfeited your right to do clay.

As mentioned earlier, all of the warm-ups are collected on Friday. They are then graded and are counted for 20% of the final grade. Throughout the nine weeks, we have several vocabulary quizzes on Mondays. All of the quiz grades collectively will count for 10% of the students final grade.
We have two types of project grades. We have Major projects and we have minor projects. Minor projects are those that might consist of a reading comprehension, artist biography, or a one day drawing. Minor projects collectively count for 20% of the students final grade.
Major Projects are those that the student has spent a great deal of time on such as a week or more. Those projects will collectively count for 50% of the students final grade. Agenda Messages – 20% Vocabulary Quizzes – 10% Minor Projects – 20% Major Projects – 50%

If a student is absent, the student will be asked to complete any work that he or she missed. He/she needs to find out the warm-ups that they missed while they were gone. These are always posted on my Website, or they can see me to get a list of the ones they missed while were absent. Otherwise, for everyday of Art that you miss, you need to do one Free drawing to bring back to class with you upon your return. This drawing can be on any type of paper using any type of material, but I ask the following… -The drawing covers the space on the page -The drawing is unique and creative -The drawing is appropriate -You must spend at least 20 minutes on the drawing
There will be make-up days before the report cards. Grades in Portal right before progress reports and right before report cards may not reflect your exact grade because I am either waiting for you to complete make-up work, waiting for you to finish a project, or waiting to review a portfolio.
We have several art shows and competitions this year. We have the Cultural Arts Christmas Card Contest, Youth Art Month Show, Middle School Mania Show, Douglas County Spotlight Show, and Art Honor Society to name a few. Anyone can do Art Honor Society, but it requires a lot of dedication. Everyone participates in the CAC Christmas card contest, and I choose who goes to the rest of the shows. I choose participants based on quality of work,class participation, and behavior record in that order. Good Luck!
