Disclosure – Art 1


Instructor:  Mrs. Parslow; Email:  mparslow@wsd.net

In Art 1 we will learn to draw what we see and appreciate and study the world around us.  We will explore techniques of creating art and being creative with the design, texture and lines.  We will acquire the terms, elements, principles and ideas of art design.

Progress grades can be accessed through the portal at www.wsdinfo.net. Grading will be based on:  Doing quality work, being on task in class, care and clean up.  The teacher and student will collaborate on grading of projects.  The grading scale is A+ 97%, A 93%, A- 90%, B+ 87%, B 83%, B- 80%, C+ 77%, C 73%, C- 70%, D+ 67%, D 63%, D- 60%, F below 60%.

 

The citizenship will be based on attitude, behavior, preparation, care and cleanup of materials, and tardiness. I follow all school policies and infractions will affect citizenship marks including: no food, drink (except water), no gum, and tardiness.  Class rules are to show respect for the teacher, for others, for property and for learning.  There is an Art Fee of $15.00 for art supplies for taking this class. If you are on a fee waiver contact Mrs. Parslow by parental note or e-mail. The course overview and materials provided are as follows:

  • paper (in a binder or notebook)
  • pencils (with a good eraser)
  • folder (to keep assignments)
  • notebook (for journaling and notes)
  • scientific calculator (optional)

 

Grading:  Grades will be based upon a percentage of total points as follows.

A+ = 97% up     A = 93-97%      A- = 90-92       B+ = 87-89       B = 83-86       B- = 80-82      C+ = 75-79

C = 70-74          C- = 65-69         D+ = 62-64     D = 58-61          D- = 55-57     F = 0-54

 

Citizenship:  Students are expected to follow school, district, and classroom rules. The citizenship grades will reflect attitude and willingness to adhere to classroom rules.
