Policies, Procedures & Guidelines

  • Be Prompt: 
    Please get all of your supplies from the drawer be in your seat working before the bell rings.

  • Be Prepared:
    Please have your materials, art and sketchbooks with you every day.
    Take care of business before you get to class and please do not ask me if you can go to the bathroom before class as I do not know how much time you need. 
    You will receive 6 passes for the semester.  If you need to use the restroom during class, you may ask to go after the first 20 minutes of class instruction and before the last 20 minutes of clean up.
    If you leave the room for any reason please sign out in the sign out notebook.

    Stay on task and a good listener and use your time wisely
    In art there is always room for improvement!

  • Be Polite:
    Respect everyone (fellow classmates and your teacher) and everything in the art room.
    This includes respect of personal space, property (artwork, supplies, etc), and not talking while someone else is addressing the class.

  • Be Positive: 

Please have a positive attitude and an open mind.

  • Be Responsible:

Keep the art room and your working environment clean.
Wipe up your tables, clean your palettes and paint brushes with soap and water.
If you get something out, put it up. 
Check the floors and sweep up any scraps left behind.

Help your neighbors clean up when you are done. Thank you!

  • Be Responsible:
    If you are absent it is up to you to check with other students and the teacher to see what you have missed. Turn in your work on time and keep your materials and art drawer as organized as possible.
    Full participation and appropriate behavior is required from the moment the tardy bell rings until the end of class when the bell rings.   Thank you!
