All electives have a prerequisite of Drawing I which is given to the 8th grade students.7th grade art is now Art Fundamentals and a precursor to Drawing I.
Grading: Students are graded on participation and assignments. 50/50. Participation is based on being a community student. Students are responsible for returning supplies or materials to their locations, attendance (unexcused will be a loss of points)cleaning up after themselves, and hard work. Students are given their participation points ahead of time. It is their responsibility to keep their points(just like a job, performance based) Assignments are based on the objective, creativity, quality and how well did they meet the objective/goal of the lesson.
