1. Respect: In order to succeed in this class students will be expected to demonstrate respect for each other, the instructor, and their classroom and the art supplies and resources within it.

    2. Participation: Participation is essential in any art class. Many times the creation of art is an active, collaborative process and to not participate is not acceptable. Students are expected to participate in daily art-making studio time and class discussion/critiques.

    3. Professionalism: As part of STTHS’s goal to develop career-ready students, everyone will be expected to conduct themselves in a professional manner. This includes things like using only professional language, keeping cell phones silent and away, to exercising increased levels of craftsmanship, cleanliness, and effort.

    4. Time Management: 45 minute periods require students to manage their time effectively each and every class. Students will learn to utilize brainstorming, sketching, and other planning techniques to develop effective, creative time management skills.
