By using this company, the whole process was really easy. I labeled the artwork, and sent it to Artome two weeks prior to the show. They came on the day of the show with the framed artwork, and even hung the artwork for me. At the end of the show they packed up any unsold frames, and will send the artwork back to me. This was great because it made cleanup easy, and we are only charged for what is sold.
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 was our first Art Show. I decided to turn our art show into a fundraiser. We had a company called Artome frame the artwork, and we sold each frame for $25.
These flowers were made by my kindergarten and fifth graders. They worked collaboratively on this.

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.
