For students in Grades K through Six:

Students in grades K-4, which attend art classes once a week, will discuss the purposes of art and intentions for famous artists and how their work's contribute to society. Students should bring pencils to class every session. Students are expected to complete all assignments, as the teacher gives frequent step by step demonstrations to develop artwork.

For students in Grades Five through Eight, including Upper Montessori:

Students in seventh and eighth grades, which attend art classes every other school day, will learn about the elements of art and importance of art through a unit on art history. Students in this grade level are required to have the following every day in art class:

  • Laptop
  • A pencil
  • A notebook (Notebook grades count twice as students are to complete all entries every class session.)

Students in Seventh and Eighth grade will receive a letter to take home to their parents for a test grade. Students will have one week from the first day of class to return the letters to the art teacher. If you did not receive a letter from your child concerning seventh and eighth grade art class, go to the "Forms" area on the previous page for this subject to view the letter. Extensions are only made during absences or emergencies.

Phone Policy: All phones and electronic devices that are not authorized for class use MUST be put away. Students needing to contact parents in school must use the school phones on campus. Visible, audible phones, or devices are at risk being confiscated. All students in the Intermediate and Advanced Art courses will be informed of this policy during the first seven days of art class.

Testing Policy: Students that cause unnecessary disruption, cheat, and/or share answers during the test will automatically receive a zero. This is in place so that students can be responsible for doing their part in keeping the classroom a quiet zone so other students can concentrate on their test will minimal distractions.
