Perkins, Pamela » Expectations


  • Arrive on Time with your sense of humor in tact. All art requires courage. 
  • Take out your notebook and write down the board notes or agenda and draw the sketch assigned.  Draw it big - embellish as much as possible.  Try an opposite meaning or one that's related.  Entertain me with your wild creative streak.
  • Listen to daily information or instruction, demo's etc. Work on your assignment.  Do some personal research, ask questions for clarification.  Sketch out a bunch of ideas.  Ask me "What if I make it like this...?"  It's probably ok, just ask.
  • There are no dumb questions - only those that are unasked.
  • When finished with your project - submit with a filled out grading sheet to the teacher.  Do this before it dries.
  • Clean up 10 minutes before the end of the period. Put all tools back clean and wash your table.
  • Respect the teacher, other students, materials and facilities. Take your finished - fired projects home.  Your family and friends will love them.
  • Tell me a good clean joke.
  • Enjoy the process.
  • Creativity is allowing yourself to make mistakes.  Art is knowing which ones to keep.  ~Scott Adams
  • Learning is a treasure that will follow its owner everywhere.  ~Chinese Proverb
