To be successful artist in room 300, you need to understand the key ingredients that make up our class environment.  Here is a brief overview of the essential elements that contribute to our success.

Effort
Artists learn to solve problems by looking at challenges from a unique perspective. So when issues arise during a project, we do not give up because it’s “wrong.” Instead we make it work by taking our mistakes and turning them into opportunities.

Skills
Once a skill is taught, students are expected to practice and learn by doing. Trying your best each and every time counts for a lot! Students encouraging other students is important in a learning environment where we are constantly sharing ideas and trying new things. I am always impressed by the ability of students to master skills so quickly in the classroom!

Behavior
Having students of excellent character is what makes for a truly rich and successful learning environment. We have a wonderful group of respectful learners at the McGlynn that make for a wonderful art room experience.

Housekeeping
We quickly realize that the art room only functions well when all students take an active role in set up and clean up! It is such a busy room with a “revolving door” so we all take responsibility for making sure we put all items back where they belong.
