					   DICKERSON MIDDLE SCHOOL STUDENT ART SYLLABUS
     SIXTH, SEVENTH AND EIGHTH YEAR PROGRAMS


The art program is designed to review or introduce
the art elements and the design principles.
Students will gain a visual vocabulary that they
will be asked to write in a daily art journal. In
addition, art history, art criticism, and
aesthetics may be explored in the various units.
While the sixth year program is an introduction to
art, the seventh and eighth year programs are
designed to continually develop the artistic skills
of the students.
Units may vary from quarter to quarter

         Be able to describe the art elements and
          design principles
         Be introduced to drawing and drawing
          techniques

     Respond to daily questions with
      thoughtful answers
     Discover art history and different
      artistic styles
     Critique a work of art

2. Student Responsibilities:
It is the students responsibility to be prompt
and prepared for class each day, (bring a pencil
with an eraser to each class), to work within
the rules and guidelines of the classroom, to
complete all assignments, to make-up any work
missed due to absence.

3. Evaluation of Written Work:     20% of total
   grade
Art Journals are written in daily to answer the
question of the day as well as take notes when
needed. Journals are collected the last week of
the 9-week rotation and graded at that time. If
a student is absent, they are not responsible
for making-up the question of the day.       Any
other written assignment will be collected and
graded at the time it is assigned.      Students
will   be   expected  to  make-up   the  written
assignment if they are absent.

4. Art Projects: 80% of total grade
Project grading criteria are:
      Following directions
      Neatness/Craftsmanship
      Creativity
      Completion upon due date

5. Clean-Up:
Each student is responsible for his/her own
clean up. All desks should be cleaned off and
all materials should be put back where they
belong. Any trash or scraps should be picked-up
off the floor to make the environment clean for
the next class coming in.

Make-Up Work:
Students may come into the art room to make-up
work or work on projects they might be falling
behind on. I am on campus by 8:15 daily.      I
encourage students to let me know that they are
coming in so that I can be sure to be here
early.   Any work that is not completed during
class time can be completed in the mornings.
Students will be given up to 3 mornings to
complete   assignments.     Make-up  work   not
completed within 5 school days will be given a
grade of 0.

Enrichment Work:
All students are expected to do enrichment work
any time a daily project is completed before the
due date and when a new project has not yet been
assigned. These projects do not take the place
of regular class assignments.

Syllabus is subject    to   change   and   will   be
revised accordingly.
