Art 1 Syllabus
Instructor: Lura Wilhelm: Email: Lwilhelm@suhsd.net Phone: 245-2767 Ext: 16132
In this class we will be exploring art through sketchbook activities, life skills and projects. We will be drawing, painting, working in 3D, multicultural art and printmaking in this class. We will explore a variety of techniques and mediums. Projects will be related to the state of California and National Common Core Art Standards, elements and principals of design as well as cultural and historical concepts attributed to art. Each project will have a main objective as well as a rubric with set guidelines directed towards a final grade.
Each student is able to use any materials present in class. Though we are unable to ask for a lab fee, we would like to ask you for a donation for your child’s use of materials in our classroom. This contribution is not required but without donations our program will not be able to create the projects needed for your child’s success in the fine arts. The art department needs to buy materials for each student participating in art throughout the school year. Please contribute $35.00 for the first and second semester (note: this contribution may be written as a donation on his/her taxes). We appreciate your generosity as it helps to keep our program strong. If there are any issues and you are unable to contribute, please see me privately and arrangements can be made.
**How to donate? You may bring check or cash to the U-Prep cashier. There they will give you receipt. I will need a copy of the receipt in order to keep track of the Art Department Account in order to buy supplies when needed. Remember, all donations are 100% tax deductible and anyone can donate. We would gladly take donations for other students in the class
**To get our art classes started with new supplies this year, we ask you to please bring your donations by the end of the 2nd week of school. If you are contributing in check please make your check payable to U-Prep. If you are donating with a check, please write your student’s name in memo section.

2nd time will be either a seat change/conference or a referral with a phone call home or
asked to sit outside class until able instructor is able to talk with student.
