Last day to turn in assignments.

I will be putting a zero in assignment that have not been turned in through the guitar.  If you have completed the cartoon it is in your grade and if you have not I will leave it blank to give you more time to finish and it will not effect your grade.  please look at your assignments online to see if I have you marked down correctly.   

Also, some of you turned in only 1 of the two pen practice sheets.  So I am attempting to give you half credit.  So if you see 5 points either I messed up or you didn't do both.   If you see a zero also come up.  I was waiting for you to do the other one and I never saw it.  So, COME UP AND LET'S LOOK TOGETHER.   

You are responsible for your grade.

Making sure you are connected. Saving work. Checking blog.

1. Making sure you are connected.   Did you create your blog and send me the URL?  I'm going to make sure I have you connected so that I can receive your work.

Lesson in posting your art work.    You're best option is PNG format although Jpeg's work too, sometimes.

2.  Are you checking the blog first thing when you come in?

3.  Remember, you are responsible for knowing where we are in class and what is due.  You do this by checking the blog.  Even if you miss class you can still check the blog.  So using the excuse..."I didn't know" is not a valid excuse.    
REMEMBER, THESE COMPUTERS WILL NOT SAVE YOUR WORK.  YOU MUST UPLOAD ALL YOUR WORK TO GOOGLE DRIVE.  EVERYTHING.   EVERYTHING.   DID I SAY EVERYTHING?
