        • Report any dangerous situations to the teacher
        • Return all tools and materials to the correct locations
    • Art Room Jobs
      • Chair Checkers: make sure all chairs are pushed in at the end of class (or stacked up at the end of the day)
      • Table Captains: Check everyone’s table at the end of class to make sure all materials are put away appropriately
      • Handout Helpers: Assist the teacher in passing out materials at the beginning of class
      • Floor Finders: Check the floor at the end of class to make sure it is clean and neat
      • Material Collectors: Assist the teacher at the end of class by picking up materials and artwork from each table
      • Final Inspectors: Check every table, chair, and the floor to give a final two thumbs up!
    • Cleaning Up After Painting
      • YOU are responsible for your own materials! Please clean up after yourself by doing the following:
        • Take water container, paintbrushes, and paint trays to the sink area. Rinse out all tools and place clean paintbrushes in the container with the bristles facing UP.
        • If there is leftover paint, leave it on the counter.
        • Throw any wet newspaper away; fold any dry newspaper to be recycled another day.
        • Put your painting on the drying rack (use two hands to carry it).
        • Make sure your table is clean and dry. Use a sponge to clean up any paint or water, and dry with paper towels.
        • Help any classmates that need an extra hand.
        • Put your paint smock back in the closet (neatly).
        • Be proud of yourself for a job well done!
    • Cleaning Up After Clay
      • Clay is FUN! Follow these rules for a quick clean up:
        • Gather any scraps of clay and place them back in the plastic clay bag.
        • Gather all tools (rolling pins, clay cutters, sponges, wire cutters) and put them back in the correct place on the clay cart
        • Wrap your clay project in your plastic bag.
          • If you are finished with the project, wrap it very loosely.
          • If you are still working on your project, wrap the plastic tightly around the clay.
        • Write your name on a piece of tape and stick it to the bag.
        • Place your project on the clay shelf.
        • Recycle any newspaper that you can; throw away any torn or wet paper.
        • Use a sponge to clean the clay off your table; dry with paper towels.
        • Help any classmates that need an extra hand.
        • Wash your hands!
        • Put your apron back in the closet (neatly).
        • Be proud of yourself for a job well done!
    • How To Turn In A Completed Project
      • Make sure your name (first and last) is on the back of your project (or on the bottom of a clay project).
      • Put your teacher code under your name (classroom teacher’s first initial and grade number. Example: Popko’s 4 th grade is P-4).
      • Place your completed project in the “completed projects” tray on the teacher’s desk. If you are finished with a painting and it is still wet, place it back on the drying rack.
    • I’m Finished…Now What?
      • Once you have completed your work and you still have some time left until the end of class, choose from these options:
        • Read a book
        • Free draw
        • Play with clay
        • Create a recycled project
        • Use the pattern blocks
        • Play a game with a friend
    • You Are On Your Way!
      • Now that you have learned how to use the Art Room appropriately, you can have a lot of fun!
      • Remember, there are no wrong answers in art. Your opinions matter. Don’t be afraid to tell people how you feel about the art we are working on.
      • Bring your ideas with you every time!
