- Take FULL responsibility for class preparation and participation by reviewing the agenda at the start of each week. It is there to help you, take advantage of that help.
- Take FULL responsibility for your personal growth by following ALL directions (spoken, written, posted, or otherwise) WHILE THINKING PAST THEM for unique solutions that APPLY what you have been learning. If you are "just completing assignments," then you are missing the point.
- Take FULL responsibility for managing your time. Your work flow and process has to make sense for you but you may need to make adjustments along the way in order to meet deadlines while keeping point #2 in mind. Steady, daily, thoughtful wins the race.
- Take FULL responsibility for asking questions, seeking help, using the resources provided online, and spending time outside of class as needed. Lunch time = open art studio....take advantage of this resource!
