Art Class Expectations

I do not expect each student to be a Leonardo da Vinci, Norman Rockwell, or Grandma Moses. What I do expect is for each student to have a good attitude, to participate in the daily work, and give 100% of their effort in their production. This APP will garner them a daily grade similar to a homework assignment. Each medium will be practiced for several weeks and will conclude with a final piece that will be weighted heavier similar to a test.

The grading will be the same across the board for every student. The novice and experienced and the gifted students will all be graded by the same standards. Artistic ability will not matter.

High School Art

Students will begin the year with simple pencil drawings. From there mediums will progress into colored pencil, pastel, and charcoals. Painting will be introduced in the fashion of water color, acrylic, and latex in the creation of our Christmas and Easter displays. In the latter part of the year students work with 3D art and will be given the opportunity choose mediums with commercial art and the final art show piece in the spring.

Middle School Art

Students will begin the year with simple pencil drawings. From there mediums will progress into colored pencil, pastel, and charcoals. Painting will be introduced in the fashion of water color, acrylic, and latex in the creation of our Christmas and Easter displays. In the latter part of the year students work with 3D art and will be given the opportunity choose mediums with commercial art and the final art show piece in the spring.
