DCA Art 1

John Stavrianoudakis jstav@dusd.k12.ca.us Room 210, DHS Phone Extension 4226

This class is designed for Denair Charter Academy students that are new to art, and wish to learn the very basics of drawing. If a student already has the basic skills, and is able to produce some decent drawings, they should sign up for the DCA Art 2 class.

ATTENDANCE/PARTICIPATION GRADES: Students will receive a score of 0-100 each time they attend for as many sessions as there are weeks in the quarter. This score is then averaged and accounts for 50% of the total grade (Total Points/Weeks in the quarter). Points will be awarded for effort & efficient use of class time during attendance. Late students will not receive full credit for the day. STUDENTS MUST ENTER THE DATE, AND SIGN THEIR INITIALS ON THE ATTENDANCE SHEET EVERY TIME THEY ATTEND CLASS IN ORDER TO GUARANTEE CREDIT. This attendance sheet is located in the front of the white binder located on Mr. Stavrianoudakis's desk.

PROJECTS/PROJECT GRADES: Projects are worth 50% of a student's grade. Projects turned in past the due date will receive a score of "zero" points until the project is submitted, thus significantly lowering their grade until the project is turned in.
