Parents, because this class takes a deeper dive into the lives and art of artist as well as creative making techniques, it's possible some weeks students will finish work outside of class. In an effort to build internal motivation to complete the works and both written and oral presentation skills, opportunities will be given to share both in the live classroom or via the classroom comments. Although this is encouraged, like other opportunities for communication in class, it is never required. Also, art making can be messy business, please dress for mess and cover work surfaces. Thanks!
