Be attentive and respectful!

Your horrible attitudeReally makes me want to help you.No eating in the art room. Ive experienced seeing some of you eat in the cafeteria. It worries me. Please dont eat near artwork.

Be open to meeting new people and working with others in class.

Get to know your classmates! Its a great way to show your respect for others.

Raise your hand when youd like to share something

Respect your supplies and the art rooms supplies!Dont take/touch something without asking permission! Dont invade others personal spaces.Use all supplies properly, clean supplies, and put supplies back where you find them!

Dont touch objects in the room that do not belong to you


WANT AN EASY TIP FOR STAYING OUT OF DETENTION?USE MATURE AND APPROPRIATE BEHAVIOR IN CLASSDont write on school property. If you feel like drawing put it on paper.

NOT SURE IF TAKING NOTES IN BINDEROR DOODLING ON THE DESK THE WHOLE TIMEIf you want to leave on time, help clean up the room...even if it wasnt your mess.

ITS 5 MINUTES UNTIL END OF CLASSCLEAN UP ALL THE MESS!Stay in your seat unless told otherwise! Walking around can be dangerous and distracting!

WANNA BE DISTRACTING IN CLASS?KEEP GETTING OUT OF YOUR SEAT Dont EVER throw away an artwork without Ms. Livotis approval!

WHAT DO YOU MEANYOU ALREADY THREW IT OUT?The experience you have in this room is dependent upon your attitude.

Commit to your art training! Make art part of your day, every day and stick to it! Walking through the door of the art room is your first step.

Dont get scared or worried about making art, or what it will look like.

Make artwork for the practice! Enjoy the practice, not the result.

Stay calm and work hard at each project! Dont let yourself get frustrated.

Every day will be different, do what you can each day.

Give your teacher and classmates your personal best so they may achieve theirs. Motivate each other to do better!

Dont cheat at art by letting someone do something for you. You have to develop your own skill and style!
