Assessment in This Class

As always the artwork you create and the way you present it will influence the grades you receive in this class.  We are in our second year as a district using Standards Based Grading.  With each unit you will see a highly detailed form that describes the assignment and shows what Reportable Standards and Priority Standards are being covered in the unit.   As we've done in the past you will participate in the critique process, which involves presenting your finished artwork and evaluating it in verbal and written form.
  •  You will use the following  rubrics to self assess your work. Each is standards based and will be used to determine your grade in this class.  In some classes you will complete these digitally, while in others you will fill out a paper copy.  
  • Each class will digitally turn in their artist statements and a copy of their digital work to the Google folder for the class.  
  • All work will be turned in digitally for this class.  Please see the Google Folder Links Embedded Below.

Getting Started

 We will be setting up our online and in class room learning environment in the first days of class.  You will want to bookmark the following:

  1. This website assignment page
  2. The Google Assignments Calendar
  3. You may also want to subscribe to the Art Blog for the latest news from the art department including exhibit opportunities, scholarships and more. 
  4. I don't use School Fusion, so please make sure you've bookmarked this site. 
  5. Bookmark the Google Folder for this class see button to the right for link. 

Supplies
For daily class you need your laptop and you also will need a sketchbook and number two pencil.  The Sketchbook should have at least 50 pages and be book or spiral bound.  8.5" x 11" or 9" x 12" is a perfect size. ​
