Course Description: This course provides students with a continued development of skills and creativity. We will work in a variety of media while we continue to learn how to use the Elements of Art and Principles of Design. By the end of this course, students should have an understanding of their interested concentration area.
Classroom Procedures & Expectations:
Beginning of Class: Students are to have their sketchbooks at the start of class every day! Each week there will be at least one sketchbook assignment. This will take place as a bell ringer. On days with no bell ringer, students are responsible for getting out their work.
Work Time: This is the only time phones are permitted. Students can use headphones and listen to music while working. Students are responsible for getting out artwork from bins & materials needed.
End of Class: Students responsibilities include putting away artwork and materials, then cleaning the table space & themselves last.
Grading: The overall Art 2 grade is based on the following key concepts:
Projects: 50%: Our goal is for students to create a finished project every 1-2 weeks of the course using a different technique, material, art style, or artist inspiration. Projects are graded with a 100 point rubric which includes a student self-assessment.
Participation: 25%: Students receive a grade each week for their participation. This includes classroom behavior, respect, using materials responsibly, and clean-up.
In-Class Work: 25%: In-Class work includes sketchbook bell ringers, practice work, worksheets, quizzes, and tests.
Materials:Each student will have their own bin in the classroom to keep their materials in.*50 Point Grade Due by Friday, August 17*
