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

The Fine Arts Fee is $5.00. This may be paid in full, or in installments of $2, $2, $1  for three grading periods and must be paid within the first two weeks of each grading period.  Also, each student must bring one five subject notebook for note taking and daily visual journals. All necessary materials will be provided unless otherwise noted. You may bring additional supplies if you wish.


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


+ Tests/Projects Due Dates: 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). 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. Again, it is the student’s responsibility to make arrangements with the teacher to complete make-up work.


+ 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.


+ 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!


+ 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 Books, Tools and Equipment is necessary and appreciated. Let’s have a great year!!
