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.

My school has been working on a recycling theme this year. For the last few months, students have been learning about being Green and doing cross-curricular assignments based on this theme. To tie into this, I had my art students collect scraps of fabric. Most of the fabric came from old clothes, blankets, or sheets. We then weaved it through chicken wire. Here are the results.

This was a fun lesson that had wonderful results. Students drew their dream home for this lesson. To begin, I gave my students pictures of a variety of houses to use as references. I then showed students how houses can be drawn using simple lines and shapes. Students drew their houses with black sharpie markers, and painted with liquid watercolors.
I think these turned out wonderful! and I love how each one is unique.
