Expectations and Rules for Student
- It is my expectation that all students will do their personal best in art class just as they would in any other class. I frequently hear comments from students that they are not good in art. It is not necessary to be a "good artist" to do well in our art classes. What is necessary is a good attitude, a willingness to try new things, good listening skills, good teamwork skills, and a sense of exploration and curiosity to individually meet project requirements. Art provides the opportunity for students to experience a different atmosphere from the standard classroom settings. It can be fun, relaxing, hands-on, messy, exciting, social, and many other potentially new and sometimes out of the ordinary experiences. However, it also comes with a set of different rules that must be followed:
- Safety: listen, follow instructions and think before you use it (anything in the room).
- Respect…everything: fellow classmates, the teacher, the classroom, materials, and all equipment.
- Clean up messes: even if you did not make them! Be a community contributor-it is part of your grade.
- Follow ALL directions and procedures and participate positively.
- Relax and enjoy it: nothing is perfect…especially art.
- ASK 3 B4 ME: if you have a question you think I might have already covered - ask three neighbors before you ask me.
As a member of this class I will:
- Show respect to myself, others, and the classroom.
- Be prepared and give my best effort.
- Do nothing to keep the teacher from teaching and anyone, myself included, from learning.
If I choose to break the code of conduct, the result may be:
- Change seats
- Student/Teacher conference
- Office referral
- Other appropriate action
