Teacher Name: Mark McBride
School Email Address: firstname.lastname@example.org
Subjects I Teach: Art
My name is Mark McBride and I am a self taught artist and graphic designer with over 13 years of expriance in art and illustration. I am also the owner of my art brand, Building Character Illustrations. My goal as a teacher is to see children realize that anyone can be an artist. I have heard this said many times before, "I can't draw." I dont want that to be the story of the children I teach. By using interactive techniques and fun-filled engaging art lessons, I am hopeful that each child in my class will gain a positive start in art.
End of the year Assignments
As we head into the final two weeks of the school year, There are still several students that have signed on to my Google Classroom but have not completed any of the assignments I have posted. This is especially for grades 3-5. For all grade levels, any and all artwork that is missing can be completed during these final two weeks. Please bear in mind that I cannot give credit if any of the artwork is not turned in.
Also, I will continue to conduct Google Meets during the regualr time frame for these final two weeks. If you have any questions or conerns, please feel free to reach out to me and I will get back to you as soon as I can.
** Kicking in Google Meets**
Parents, I have had issues where students are kicking other students out of our Google Meets session times. This is very frustrating because when it happens, other students miss valuable information during our meeting time. Please speak with your child about this issue and if you are availabe to do so, please moniter their behavior while they are online. Your time and attention to this matter is greatly appreciated.
**Google Meets Announcement TIME CHANGE FOR ART MEET**
I will be available live on Google Meets to answer any questions that you may have about the assignments. To access my google meets click on this link LGE Visual Arts Google Meet Once you are on the page, please click join and type in lgevisualarts. From there you will have access to the meet and I will help you with any questions or concerns you may have about the art assignments.
The Schedule for my Google Meets is as follows:

3rd Grade: 9am - 9:20am
4th Grade: 9:20am - 9:40am

I am going to ask that you please keep the questions centered around the lesson. This means no jokes, silliness, or chatting with other students during the time that we have to meet. Parents, I would appreaciate it if you would ensure that your children are following these guidelines. If by some chance you miss the meeting, then I will still be available through email to answer any questions you may have.
During the weeks that we will be out of school, I will be conducting my class from Google Classroom. However, for grades K-2, I will be posting the assignmnets for those grade levels in the links located on the left side of my web page. Parents, for those of you with children in grades K-2, I will be sending out intructions on a weekly basis concerning your child's artwork. Some artwork may require a series of steps in order to reach completion so please check back in during the week as I will be adding in extra steps for your child to complete for the week. Once the assignment is fully finished, please email me a picture of your childs completed artwork.
