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.

Odd Creatures, 2nd Grade

Students have been reading a theme called "Odd Stories." To tie my art into this, we created "Odd Creatures." We looked at the artwork of Joan Miro and I showed students how simple shapes can be used to make a creature. For example, the body could be a triangle and the head could be a star. These creatures were colored with oil pastels and a watercolor wash was used for the background.

Second graders are always so creative.
