My goal is to help every child succeed. Therefore, students are expected to work to the best of their abilities. I teach students to embrace mistakes in the art classroom and to learn from mistakes. I encourage every child to be fearless in the art room and to work to their full potential.
Student grades are based on the following:
creativity- Students are expected to follow the directions on projects, but to also add their personal skills, ideas, and knowledge into their unique work of art.
participation/behavior- Students are expected to offer comments and ideas during discussions. Every student is encourage to always try and do their best. Positive attitudes are praised within the art classroom.
craftsmanship- Students are expected to apply the skills they are learning to the best of their ability within each art lesson.
lesson objectives- Students are expected to follow and meet the lesson objectives within each art project and are encouraged to go beyond the objectives.
