#Goals and #Introductions to #ART!

“Unless you have a definite, precise, clearly set goals, you are not going to realize the maximum potential that lies within you.” — Zig Ziglar 

How can you look at and use SMART GOALS? Thanks to http://transformfxfitness.com/2013/04/goal-setting/ for the image!


Welcome back to school! This is going to be a GREAT year and I am VERY excited to be back. I hope that all of you are too. There are a few things that we do in the art classroom that will happen everyday – Goal Setting (based on the National Visual Arts Standards), Work, and Reflection. This will all become second nature as the semester rolls along and I ask you to trust that what we do in class at the beginning and end of the class will help you in the middle portion of class as well as with the final artwork that we create. PLEASE subcribe to this website AND add your name to the TEXTING feature of REMIND – School Texting Services.
