Art rOOM PRocedures
I am so excited about the artwork and creativity that will happen in art this year! I want to introduce some classroom procedures and values that will make the year a success for all.
Every class, students have the opportunity to get an “Art Ticket” In order for a class to receive this, they must follow 7 steps.
1. Entering the classroom quietly
2. Listening to instructions
3. Be respectful to yourself, others, and materials.
4. Be kind
5. 100% effort on artwork
6. Responsible clean up
7. Line up nicely
Each class competes with their grade levels to earn the most art tickets for each quarter. By the end of the 9 weeks, the class with the most tickets will have a reward!
Students will sit at table groups. Each class, a table will be assigned a job to keep everyone accountable.
Check tables, floors, materials, shelves, sinks, leave the art room better than it was before!
Pay special attention to directions so you can help to answer classmate’s questions
CLEAN UP CREW
Remind about appropriate voice levels, dismiss quiet tables.
Hand out and collect materials neatly and nicely.
Calm Down Center
If students need a break, there is a desk in the classroom where students can choose to go to focus on their emotions, and to calm down in a safe place. This will have a workbook with positive affirmations and alternative assignments/activities.
I want to be as transparent as possible with grades in the art classroom. It is my goal that all students will meet and exceed standards. Below is a visual example to bring more clarity.
I am committed to supporting diversity of thoughts, perspectives and experiences. I honor your identities (including race, gender, class, religion, ability, and more.)
I am open to feedback from parents, staff, and students.
Students can leave feedback in a mailbox on my desk!
Stay in the loop about what is happening in the art room, by following the art class Instagram page:
