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.

This is a great lesson to teach reflections. I found the idea for this lesson on the blog, Fine Lines. Basically, all you have to do is have students draw and color the top half of their paper with regular washable markers. Then students spray water on the bottom half of their paper. After this, students fold their paper and rub. This makes a simple easy print of the image.
I allowed my students to draw any landscape image. Some students drew houses, while other drew castles, mountains, or farms.
This is a great example of art that connects to math. This one is easy enough to be done by either the art teacher or the classroom teacher.

Arteascuola. Students drew a cake and then added shading to make it more realistic.

Last week I started an after school art club for my 4th and 5th Graders. I have 30 students in art club, and I have several teachers who have volunteered to help. This was our first art club assignment, which was inspired after the artwork of Keith Haring.
It has been a long time since I have posted new lessons. This is because I have recently started a Master's Degree, and it has taken most of my extra time. I will try to do better though, and post more often.
After that, students created the background with liquid watercolors, and then painted the house with black tempera paint.
I just love that each house looks different.
