In the Disciplined-Based Art Education program, students will participate in
both written and production activities which include Art History, Art
Criticism, Aesthetics, and Art Making. Through these avenues, students will
acquire an appreciation for the world of the arts, their own art, and they
will develop a uniformed understanding of the art process.

EFFORT AND FOLLOW THE GUIDELINES OF EACH CONCEPT WE WILL BE STUDYING.
You will keep a pencil case in the Art room for the entire quarter. In it,
you will need to have: 2 pencils (NO Mechanical pencils!)
At the end of the quarter, your pencil case will be given back to you.
"All the Time” Rules & Procedures:
These policies and procedures are important and extremely easy to go along
with. By following the rules and procedures, you will achieve success and
have a lot of fun in Art. Other rules will apply based on individual lessons
& activities going on in the Art room throughout the quarter.
1. Arrive to class on time, quietly, and in a mature fashion. Find your seat,
and sit quietly until Ms. Lockman takes attendance & gives the day’s
instructions. Refer to the school tardy policy in your student handbook.
2. Remain in your assigned seat unless there is a classroom-related necessity
for getting up. No one is allowed to roam around the room.
3. Respect and use all art supplies appropriately—abuse of art supplies will
not be tolerated. Return all supplies to their designated locations. Do not
take any art supplies out of the classroom.
4. Do not ask to leave the classroom unless it is an emergency. Use the
restroom before you arrive to class. Visits to other teachers, guidance, etc.
are granted ONLY if you have a pass from that individual.
5. Absolutely no roughhousing. Safety is priority, and any action that
jeopardizes the safety of you, another student, or the teacher will not be
tolerated. Never throw any type of object in the classroom. Keep your hands
to yourself: Your classmates have the right to expect you to keep your hands
off them and their property and, in turn, you have the right to expect them
to do the same.
6. Do not touch, mark or otherwise harm the art work of another student: Art
work is highly valued in this room and any damage done by one student to
another's work is considered a serious disciplinary matter.
7. Work productively with limited stops. Art projects should reflect your
greatest effort! Sleeping, and other kinds of unproductive activities during
class time are strictly prohibited and will result in disciplinary action.
8. At the designated clean-up time, follow all specified clean-up procedures
we have established and make sure that your work station is clean. Your
table/floor area must be clean before you are dismissed. Wait quietly for
closure and dismissal from the class by Ms. Lockman...not anyone else!
9. As always, treat the teacher, your peers, and yourself with respect. Your
willingness to be respectful, responsible, fair, trustworthy, and cooperative
will be appreciated and are very important to the success of our class.

Students may come in early to get additional help or time to work on
assignments. Please give at least 48 hours notice, as I may have school-
related duties or meetings to attend. Students must obtain a signed pass by
me in their agenda book in order to be permitted into the building for their
session. Following an absence, it is the student’s responsibility to talk to
me about missing work, and obtain their make-up assignment. Any missing work
not submitted may result in a grade of “zero”. Remember, your success is up
to you! This is YOUR journey!
