    • 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).

    • 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.

      • Put your apron back in the closet (neatly).
      • Be proud of yourself for a job well done!

    • 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.
