GENERAL INFORMATION (Fees, attendance, subject matter, etc):

The Art Lab Fee is $22.00. This may be paid in full, or in installments of $8, $7, $7 for three grading periods and must be paid within the first two weeks of each grading period. All necessary materials will be provided  unless otherwise noted. You may bring additional supplies if you wish. Also, each student must bring one roll of paper towels or one box of wet wipes, 12 #2 pencils, and one three subject composition book for note taking and daily visual journals.


+ Subjects dealing with gangs, sex/nudity, alcohol, drugs, tobacco, witchcraft/devils, extreme violence, or racial themes are NOT allowed to be drawn in this class. If you are in doubt about a particular theme, ask the teacher or just don’t draw it!! Failure to comply will result in a 0/F grade on that particular project.


+ Projects/Tests Due Dates: Students will be informed of due dates for particular projects. If a project is incomplete on that due date, it must be turned in as such. If you are absent due to illness, with a written excuse from home or a doctors excuse, the   project may be completed on your own time at a later date to be determined by the teacher. It is the student’s responsibility to coordinate with the teacher and peer group any work that is to be made up. If the teacher feels the student is wasting time, playing around, etc., the project will be picked up and graded as is, with no extra make-up time allowed. Tests and quizzes are to be made up within five (5) school days at the teacher’s convenience only with a written excuse from home or a doctor’s excuse. Any work not made up within that time will result in a grade of zero (0). Again, it is the student’s responsibility to make arrangements with the teacher to complete make-up work.


+Students are responsible for turning in one detailed drawing every two weeks for eight weeks of the grading period.  A total of four drawings at fifty points each (200pts total) will be turned in during each grading period. These drawings will not be accepted late! If you are absent on the due date, you must turn in your drawings on the day you return to school, or it will be counted as 0/50.  


+ A daily visual journal will be kept in class and checked regularly. Three 30 point grades will be given throughout each 9 weeks grading period. Failure to complete/participate in the activity will negatively affect daily points. 


+ Daily class participation: You will receive a total of 225 points during each grading period (5 points/day). Any infractions (see below) or absences will result in the loss of these points.


+ A loss of points may be incurred and subtracted from a student’s Class Participation grade for any of the following infractions:

     -Cleaning up early, stopping work, or sitting idle before clean-up time. You will be advised by the 
        teacher or substitute when it is time to clean up.

     -Unnecessary walking/standing, loud excessive noise/ talking/ singing, disturbing others, or sleeping
         in class.
     -Doing homework, copying homework, writing/reading notes, or studying for another class.

     -Being discourteous or disrespectful to teacher, substitute, visitor, or classmate.

     -Damaging or destroying property that is not yours.

     -Any other behavior or infraction that is not in keeping with school rules, regulations, or policies.


+ Please do not take or remove anything from this classroom that is not yours. If you need to borrow something, JUST ASK!


+ Projects/assignments will be graded on a similar scale as below:

- Elements of art relating to project – 75% of project grade

- Understanding/use of media & materials – 25 % of project grade

- Incomplete projects will receive a grade of zero (0 %)


+ I am available for conferences or extra help before school, during my planning period (you MUST get permission from your assigned teacher during that period BEFORE reporting to me), and after school if needed. Always make arrangements with me beforehand if you are in need of a conference or extra help.


+ Your cooperation in taking care of Art Tools and Equipment is necessary and appreciated. Let’s have a great year!!
