themselves through various media. The students will be exposed to art
history; masterpieces of artwork, and discover the elements and principles
of design. Students will develop skills through “hands on” experiences in
the art room.

and a full year course.

Teachers are required to provide at least three major assessments/grades and at least nine other grades (daily grades) during each grading period. Teachers are highly encouraged to provide more assessments as appropriate. For my class there will certainly be more in each area.
Warm ups grades are Daily grades and there will be one for each week of school.
Sketchbook assignments are Major grades and will be assigned every two weeks starting soon. Students will be able to work on their sketchbook assignments one day during the 2 week period after it is assigned and can work on it also when they have completed an assignment.
