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 fourth graders have been creating coil pots. Students learned to create coils, and attach using the score and slip method. Since this is their first experience with coils, I also give them the option to create a pinch pot for the base. I do this because many students struggle to create a strong enough base with only coils.

Cassie Stephen's blog. I made a few changes to the original lesson though, since I teach from a cart.
After the clay was dry and fired in the kiln, students added color using oil pastels. Then we brushed over everything with watered down India Ink. This created a resist.

History Detectives video. It really is a great introduction to the history of face pots.

Each one turned out different, and the students are so proud of them! This is one of my favorite assignments from this school year! We will be displaying these at International Night at my school.
