Welcome to General Art!I am your teacher Ms. Van Wyngeeren. I am very glad to be here and look forward to a great year.

“ Guiding Question: How can I be successful in art this year?”


1. Take a seat wherever! (for now) Put your bags under your tables.

2. Look for the blank note card at your seat.

3. Write:

a. Name: First and Last

b. Nick name: If you have one

c. I do or do not have a device that I will have at school. (If so, what is it?)

d. I do or do not have internet at home for school work.

e. I live with my….(most of the time)

f. outside of school I am involved in the following activities: (sports, dance, chess club etc.) If none, what do you do in your spare time?

Turn your card over- write two truths and one lie not in that

order that are uniquely about yourself!

Scan the QR code with your device if you have one.

Today’s Goals:

  • Welcome and Intro

  • Syllabus

  • Classroom Procedures

  • Getting to know you/ 2 Truths and 1 lie challenge


  • If you have a Device BYOD get it out and scan the QR code or google “DSISD”

  • Click on the “Schools” drop-down and choose “middle school”

  • Select “Teachers web page” from the left

  • Choose “Ms. Van Wyngeeren

  • Click “About Ms. VW”

  • Open “2013-14 General Art Syllabus”


Not in that order necessarily…let’s be sneaky now;)

2 truths &

1 Lie

Class Procedures

  • Silently begin your “warm-up”

  • Wait silently for instructions/

  • introductions

  • No talking during announcements

Coming to class

Be in assigned seat BEFORE the bell rings.

Look to the front of the room for instructions

Fill in your planner or device with any notes/hw

During Class

  • Studio Time:

  • Be focused on art

    • Be productive

    • Be in your seat.

  • Use tools correctly/safely

  • Respect the room, materials and others.

  • Water is allowed in a sealed container only. (no gatorade etc.)

  • Listen silently to instructions

    Take notes when instructed

    Wait for “Studio time” to get materials

    Always be in assigned seat.

    Daily Sketchbook

    1 sketchbook warm-up each day.

    Begins when the bell rings

    Is silent work time at your seat.

    Is worth 20pts. each

    5 sketches per week for 100pts. Total

    If you have an excused absence when you come back write “excused absence” in your sketchbook.

    Turning in Work

    Turn in on time

    Store in classroom drawers. (Never get artwork at the start of class without permission first it will be passed out to you by designated students)

    Wet projects are stored on the drying rack labeled by class period.

    Finished projects are turned in to the “turn-in” cart on the due date only for full credit.

    Turn in all work with your Name (First & Last) and class period

    Write neatly. Write on the back, top right of artwork!

    Example: Sally Mae

    Period 6

    You are responsible for turning in work and picking up work if you are absent.

    1. Check my webpage

    2. Check for handouts- pink “make-up” bin by the windows.

    3. Check with a classmate for specifics

    4. Clarify with Ms. Van Wyngeeren (please not when she is addressing the entire class)

    Clean- up

    Everyone cleans!

    “Leave no trace”

    As a class we are responsible for leaving the room better than we found it.

    Do not clean up early.

    Clean up after yourself.

    Expect to help with extra class clean-up jobs

    Have a seat when you have completed cleaning until you are dismissed by Ms. Van Wyngeeren to line up at the door.

    Push chairs in.


    If we go anywhere we must stay together and stay silent

    • You must fill out your own pass completely if you need to go anywhere, bring me a pen. I do not give passes for drinks.

    • Bathroom Passes- 4 given for every 9 weeks. Once they are gone you need to wait until the hour is over.

    • Tardy students come in quietly. Do not disturb class. Sign in on the “tardy sign-in” sheet by the entrance and get to work.

    • Fire - out the door to the RIGHT, STAY TOGETHER listen for attendance

    • Tornado- in the hallway with back against the wall.

    • Lock down- silent, sitting on the floor in the corner out of sight from windows.

    I’m done! Now what?

    First thing, I would be very aware of how much time is given to a project. If you are done before everyone else around you, you may need to put in more time.

    Check your project with Ms. V see if I have any suggestions.

    Finish any Art related projects/homework

    Enrichment Activities: specified by project.

    Art time is for art only. If you finish a project early expect to have an alternative project or to draw in your sketchbook for the remainder of the hour. (Homework for other classes is for home or studyhall)

    Room C117 Expectations

     Be respectful.

    Be creative.

    Be prepared.

    Be on task.

    Be clean.

    Be in your assigned seat

    Be dismissed by Ms. VW, not the bell.

    BYOD “Bring Your Own Device

    • We are a “Bring Your Own Device” campus. This means a student with a smart-phone, tablet, and laptop may use their device at teacher or administrator directed times and activities. We will use devices in class for image research, e-magazines, and photography.YOU DON’T NEED TO PURCHASE OR BRING A DEVICE TO SCHOOL. My apology to students who hoped I would be THE teacher who MADE their parents buy them a smart phone.

    • ***Guidelines: Students will come into class with devices turned off (not silenced) and put away (out of sight). They will be used only for academic purposes when instructed during my designated 50 minute art class period. In case of emergency parents may contact the front office for communication or choose to use non-academic time.
