Materials: You will need a white page sketchbook with sufficient pages to make two sketches per week and any necessary class brainstorming during class.
Daily Expectations: Use your class time to work on assigned tasks. Failure to stay on task and excessive socializing will result in falling behind on a project, lead to incomplete work, or even a write up for interfering with the work of other students.
If you miss a class stop by and ask me what you need to do to catch up to the pace of the rest of the class. You can best talk to me during my planning time, which is 1st period, but you can try to find me any other time too.
Each project (worth 20 points) is graded on: 1. meeting criteria/objectives of the lesson
2. A finished piece
3. Originality of your work
4. Being neat and taking care
5. Using class time wisely
