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.

Native American Patterns. 5th grade

Sorry, these photos are a little fuzzy, but I think you get the jist. Basically, we talked about Native American Patterns and I especially focused on their bead work. I took a blank grid and had students create their own simple patterns that could be repeated over and over.
Some students love this, but some do not. It takes a lot of thought and planning. It's great for students with more mathematical minds though. It is extremely important that students color neatly inside the grid. (I photocopied the grid from a Native American beading book I own.)
