1. Food, drinks, candy, gum are not allowed in the Art rooms. You will be sent to the office for this… NO “WARNINGS”. A bottle of WATER is permitted in room 206 (only).

2. Be in the room before the bell rings. Dropping your stuff and leaving would not qualify you as being on time.

3. Sit at your assigned seat unless I give you the “OK” to move. That means you do not walk around the room during the class to socialize.

4. Talk quietly with students at your table.

5. Draw, paint, etc. on your artwork only!

6. Use materials from your tote-tray only… don’t go into other people’s trays.

7. Bring your work home anytime you want. You are responsible for having it back next day.

8. If you must swear, or use crude/vulgar language, please do it elsewhere. Thanks…

9. Encourage your fellow classmates in a positive way… Treat them fairly and nicely.

10. You are responsible for cleaning your work area and tools that you used. I am not going to do it for you.


You will receive a zero for the day if:

1. You are unprepared for class
