September Line- A mark that begins at one point and continues for a certain distance.

October Color- what we see when light is reflected off objects.

December Form - An object that has height and width and depth.

January Texture - The way a surface looks or feels.

Grading Rubric for Art

Art is not a subject that can be easily graded. Art is a subjective topic, not everyone views the same artwork with the same opinion. As an Art Teacher, I base the student's grade on a variety of criteria.

Participation in Class.

Organizational Skills.

Neatness and quality of craftsmanship.

Comprehension of Design Elements and Principles.

Homework turned in on time.

Projects completed by the due date.

Cooperation with the teacher and fellow students.

Ability to learn from constructive criticism.

Willingness to accept new ideas.

This is my grading system


 

Grading Rubric for Art

Art is not a subject that can be easily graded. Art is a subjective topic, not everyone views the
same artwork with the same opinion. As an Art Teacher, I base the student's grade on a variety of
criteria.
Participation in Class.
Organizational Skills.
Neatness and quality of craftsmanship.
Comprehension of Design Elements and Principles.
Homework turned in on time.
Projects completed by the due date.
Cooperation with the teacher and fellow students.

Ability to learn from constructive criticism.
Willingness to accept new ideas.
This is my grading system
A (94-100) = Meets and exceeds all expectations
B (88-93) = Meets almost all expectations
C (80-87) = Meets most expectations
D (70-79) = Meets some expectations
F (69 and below) = Does not adequately meet the criteria as defined above.
Students always have the opportunity to talk to me about their grades. If you feel you have been
critiqued unfairly, please address the matter with me, not your classmates. Grades are a private
matter.
If a student feels that his or her project did not get the grade it deserved, there will be an
opportunity to resubmit the project to receive a higher grade.
Any child that does their best to complete quality work and adhere to the grading criteria will do
very well (receive an A) in art class. I value the unique talents of every child that enters my art
room. I look forward to a productive year!
