Welcome to Sixth Grade Art
Your child will enjoy art every day for one full semester. Sixth graders will warm up by working on evaluative drawing exercises for the first week. This gives an idea of what type of student your child is. After this, graded projects begin with a simple contour line drawing project. The course flows into various drawing and painting projects. Art history and appreciation is included along with a summary test to round out the written aspect of this course.
Each student is given a Course Evaluation Sheet on the first day of class. This is your link to their art grades and progress. Students understand that this may be brought home at any time to review with parents. Students are given an opportunity to re-submit any project for a re-evaluation within one week of initial grading. After school help is usually available Monday through Wednesday. Either art teacher may be reached via phone or e-mail.
