Welcome to the Glidden-Ralston Art Room! Time to use your brain in a different (and important) way...
Creativity! Problem solving! Self expression!
We've got it all!
You will find resources and information here to help you be successful in your Art classes. This site is a work in progress, so if there is something you'd like to have access to, please let me know.
**NOTE: Projects will not necessarily be created in the order they are listed on the webpage. I also reserve the right to add new stuff and try new ideas (as you know I love to do)...because that's part of the fun of being an Art teacher!
ART ROOM EXPECTATIONS:
Finish all projects on time.
**Students will be given two due dates to help them set goals for themselves in getting work in on time. The first date will be the last day they may work on a project in class. The second date will be the last day a project can be turned in for full credit. These due dates are typically two to four days apart.
If a project is turned in late, it is expected that it will still be of the highest quality.
**This is why, if students do not get done on time, they are given one week to turn a project in for one grade deduction, after the second week it is a two grade deduction and so on until they reach the point where they receive only the points required by our grading policy.
Use class time wisely.
** The harder students work during class, the less they have to work on a project out of class. People work at a variety of paces so if a student knows that Art due dates are a challenge for them, staying focused during class time is extra important.
Give your best effort to each project.
** Students will have varying opinions about each project that they are assigned. This is completely normal as we all have personal preferences. However, each project is designed to teach or reinforce a multitude of lessons that will help students become better artists, thinkers and problem solvers. Therefore, I ask you to tolerate the projects you don’t like and appreciate and enjoy the ones that you do.
Take responsibility for your learning.
** The art room is an independent learning space. You will learn as much or as little as the effort you put into your work. Students are asked to care as much about their work as I do and strive to use the full range of their skills.
