Welcome to Art at Lockport School!

When you're in the art room, you are expected to:

  • Follow classroom behavior expectations
  • Come to class ready to participate in classroom discussions and activities
  • Put your personal electronics away. The use of phones and other personal electronics in class is not allowed unless permission is given for specific projects.  Please see the school policy on electronic devices for more detailed information.
  • Complete assignments and projects on time.  Class time will be given for students to work on assignments, however any work not completed during this time will become homework.  Detailed information regarding assignment requirements will be given in class before we start each assignment. 
  • Use all art equipment properly and respectfully, to clean up their work space after each class, and to follow class and equipment safety rules.  Students will not be allowed to use classroom art supplies if there is an intentional misuse of equipment.

I look forward to a creative and constructive year ahead!
