This is a professional program that demands a professional attitude. This means that:
1. Your attendance is mandatory. Excused absences are very rare.
2. You must be on time for class. This shows respect for yourself and fellow classmates.
3. Work is to be turned in on time. No late work will be accepted.
4. Your participation in class is required. This is the only way to get the most out of a studio class.
5. It is important that you are team player. The work environment will demand the same.
6. Work must be professional. It must be well thought out and appear neat and professional. Good craft is paramount.
7. You must attend field trips and represent yourself and BCC in a professional manner.
8. You will learn to criticize yourself and classmates in a spirit of constructive criticism.
9. Always be ready to work and able to work in studio. This means you must always have your materials and projects with you.
Please read Student Procedures and Expectations:
Evaluation of assignments will be based upon several criteria: completion of requirements, understanding and application of concepts, neatness and presentation quality, and other specifics particular to individual projects. Assignments will be scored on a point system. At the end of the quarter, the points will be tallied and then converted to a letter grade, based on the following formula:
90-100 A-, A, A+
80-89 B-, B, B+
70-79 C-, C, C+
60-69 D-, D, D+
< 60 F
All work must be “turned in” on the assigned due date at the assigned time. Projects will usually be reviewed in-class, and work must be displayed and/or presented to receive full credit. No late assignments will be accepted.
An “Incomplete” grade may be awarded only in cases where extenuating circumstances have prevented the students from completing no more than one of the projects or tests for the quarter. To be eligible for an “I” grade, the student must have prior approval of the instructor. Questions about grades, including an approximation of the letter grade earned to date, will be welcomed at any time during the quarter.
