Course Description: Students in Art II will work with ceramics, drawing, painting, printmaking, and cultural art forms. Through the exploration of these media and the knowledge acquired in Art I, more advanced projects will be created, as well as, prepare each students for further art studies.
Homework: In Art II, there is not a great deal of out of class homework, unless the in class deadlines are not being met. Sketchbooks, however, are almost entirely out of class assignments. Each sketchbook is worth 10 points-20 points One paper will be due each semester and the preparation for these writing samples will take place almost entirely outside of class.
Grading: All art projects are worth 48 points. These points are divided into several categories. Some such categories are overall product (guidelines and quality), art process (time management and effort), and presentation (content, delivery, critique, and listening). Art I has several projects due over a grading period, which allows for a large accumulation of points. Other ways students may gain points are through sketchbooks, participation, and writing assignments.
Late Grade Policy: All projects are worth100 points or 100%
ONE class period late = - 10%
TWO class periods late = -20%
Three class periods late = -40%
Sketchbooks = 10-20 points (100%)
ONE class period late = -10%
After one class period late, sketchbooks will no longer be accepted.
Quarter grades: quarter grades are percentage of points earned from projects, daily participation, homework and written assignments. ex. 225/250 pts- 90%B)
(Example: (1st Quarter x 2) + (2nd Quarter x 2) + (Semester Test)/5
