Art 3/4 assignments-
Do these on your own – when you need help I’m here – feel free to come in at lunch, my prep is period, or after school to work if you need time. You would be wise to bring your work home on the weekends to get things finished up. If you don’t there’s little chance of you getting everything done. Use your time in class wisely – don’t stare off into space or play with your buddies – you’ll do good to make a D, and be very lucky to make a C, if that’s how you work.
Use your sketchbook to rough out ideas for each project – I should be able to look through these and see a correlation of sketches to projects that you will make.
