Grades are earned through a set of requirements that are stated and discussed at the beginning of each lesson. I look at what each individual student creates. I think that the students should be exposed to a variety of materials and techniques during the year. Grades will vary because of the skill level of each student to manipulate the different materials and techniques. I do not grade on behavior.
My wish is for our children to gain an appreciation for the arts and the wonder of why people need to create.
