                            Daily Studio Participation-                           20%

                           Sketchbook, Notes and Quizzes-                 20% 

                            Completed Projects-                                    60%


    Studio participation is graded daily and extends over each 10-week marking period.  Students start with 100 points and lose points when choosing not to participate on a daily basis. 

    Grades close at each 5-week marking period.  Before that time, students will be kept informed of their progress and reminded of assignments not handed in.  Any work that has not been completed and turned in will be recorded in my grade book as a ZERO.

                            2.  Critical Thinking/Presentation 

                            3.  Craftsmanship

                            4.  Work Ethic


    *Late Projects will be penalized 10 points for each class session it is late. 

    *If you are absent on due date, your sketchbook or project is due the day you return.


    As young adults, I believe in making the student responsible for his or her art education.  He or she makes of it what he or she puts into it.  I don’t believe I need to list the rules for proper conduct in a classroom; I assume my students have the common sense to know what appropriate, acceptable behavior is as well as what recourse I have if that expectation is not met.


    Art Materials Needed Daily-

                1.  #2 pencil

                2.   white art eraser- should already have from DP1

                3.     gum or kneaded eraser- blue or gray; should already have from DP1

                4.     drawing pencils with an ebony pencil; should already have from DP1

    Each of you will make your own sketchbook in the first 10-weeks of class.
