Summer 2017

In the art room, each and every student is considered an artist. A knowledge of art forms and skills will broaden their experience and deepen a child's appreciation of the visual arts. This will also help them to develop skills that they can put to use in other areas of study. 

Through various art activities, students explore their power of observation, their problem-solving skills, and their creative imagination. The student's will experience the delight of expressing themselves in ways that can be enjoyed by themselves and others.

St. John's art program offers an opportunity for children to discover, explore and experience a variety of art techniques. The children will create using form, color, lines, shapes, textures, and space. By experiencing various art techniques, each child will improve their powers of observation and creativity.

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!
