Design is the structure of art . The elements and principles unify the different parts and give visual order.
Design is apart of all our lives. It is the clothes you wear and how you where them. The car you drive. How you wear your hair.
I will help students learn each element and principle of art through note taking, drawing, painting, clay and other artist techniques. It is a hands on class with time to do and think about what you are doing.



Design is everywhere - and that is why looking for a definition may not help you grasp what it is.

Final - 10% OF YOUR GRADE- LAST WEEK OF THE QUARTER
Tests as given.


Grading policy: students are expected to show up for class and use their time wisely. 20% of your grade is attendance and participation, 4 points for each day, 1 point each day for showing up and 3 point for participation and not acting out. A school field trip will give you the 1 attendance point but not the participation point.
All missed days maybe helped or made up by speaking to the instructor.

Attendance points will be tallied weekly so you may know where you stand.

You will receive 3 grades or more each week.

You may have only 2 0s in the grade book. If you have 3 0s your grade will be an F no matter what your percentage is. This is based on 1 week to do make up work. Grades due every Wednesday.
