Hello and welcome to art class at Holy Family Regional School. My name is Rain Haran and this is my 11th year teaching at HFRS. I am excited to work with your children and utilize a wide variety of materials, techniques and subject matter. I look forward to working with your child’s teacher to create artwork that compliments what they are learning in the classroom. This will enhance their learning and enrich their classroom lesson, while expanding their creativity and art knowledge. I am thrilled to be working with such a warm faculty and encouraging community of parents. I look forward to helping your child grow academically, spiritually, and of course, artistically!


Grading will be comprised of three components: academic performance, conduct, and effort. Rubrics will be handed out at the beginning of a graded project so that students understand what is expected from them. As far as conduct, students will be expected to adhere to school policy as well as classroom rules. Classroom rules revolve around respect, including respect for the teacher and their classmates, respect for themselves (I do not tolerate the putting down of their own work or the work of others, including the altering of others’ artwork) and respect for the classroom. This includes the treatment of art materials and cleaning up. Please know that the most emphasis will be placed on effort. Effort is assessed by the student’s ability to follow instruction, overcome challenges, class participation, and willingness to help others. Occasionally I assign homework, which is typically gathering visual materials to be used as references and/or inspiration. If and when this occurs, it will be appropriately weighted as a percentage of a student’s grade, and should be treated as seriously as any other assignment.

Smocks and Pencils:

It is highly recommended that students bring in smocks or old shirts to wear over their uniforms. We will occasionally use materials that stain clothing. Students are responsible for bringing in their own pencil to art. If a student has an art box and prefers to bring it to class, they may, as long as it does not become a distraction.
