You will be doing a daily sketchbook assignment which
will be given at the beginning of class each day.
Sketchbooks will be graded at mid-terms
and most are worth 10 points each day.
Sketchbook assignments must be IN a
sketchbook in order to be graded.
They also need to be in order by date.
They will be graded on completion, neatness and following directions
If you do a SUPREME job on sketches you could receive extra credit.
No- you just need to come every day, complete all the projects, assignments, and sketchbooks - doing your personal best work.
If you do all of the above – your artistic skills WILL improve and Mrs. Montierth will be happy to give you the A you deserve.
(there are a few opportunities for extra credit too)
Most assignments and projects will have a due–date and work won’t be graded until a few days after the due-date. After the project due-date, there will not be in class time to work on projects.
After work has been graded you will lose credit for turning in work late
one week late – 20% credit loss
two week’s late – 50% credit loss
more than two week’s late – work may be given
some points at Mrs. Montierth’s discretion.
for this class?
Absolutely – Quietly & Appropriately/During work time.
Mrs. Montierth thinks that learning to get along
with other people is one of the most important
things you will gain during your Education.
However- NOT during instruction.
If Mrs. Montierth is giving instruction – talking amongst
yourselves and talking out of turn is considered rude and
inconsiderate of those around you who are trying to hear.
Yes – there are times when you will need to
get supplies, sharpen pencils, etc.
However - It is considered rude and inconsiderate to Mrs. Montierth and other Students in the class to get up and sharpen a pencil, turn on the water, ask for the hall pass or any other sort of disruption, while Mrs. Montierth is giving instruction or any other person is giving a presentation or demonstration.
Try to remember your good manners
However – if you have a valid reason for doing so, such as, in the event we have a guest artist they would like to see, your friend must get permission from their teacher in writing – prior to coming to our class.
You also need to ask Mrs. Montierth for permission before inviting them to come.
You will be disrupting another
class and you will be marked
