Welcome to Lines, Dots, and Doodles. This is the place for students, parents, and teachers to find out what has been going on in my art class. I have included pictures of my student's artwork and basic explanations of the projects. I hope when you leave this blog, you feel inspired to create. Feel free to browse this blog and borrow any of my art lessons.

I found this cute Banyan Tree project on the blog Art. Paper. Scissors. Glue. To begin this project, students used black paint to draw a tree. After the paint was dry, students began using oil pastels to color the background. I encouraged the students to blend several colors together and blend with their finger.

pinterest, unfortunately I do not know what blog or website it was pinned from, because it does not seem to lead back to the original site.

These beautiful owls were made by my fifth graders. This project took three, 30 minute, classes. To begin this project, students drew an owl that had interesting lines or patterns onto black paper. Next, students painted a different piece of paper with with two analogous colors. After the background had dried, students cut their owl out and glued it to their painted background.
I think these are just beautiful!
