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.

Starry Night, Kindergarten

Today, I had my Kindergartners look at Van Gogh's "Starry Night." For this project, we drew stars and a moon with oil pastels. I encouraged students to use warm colors (yellow, orange, red). Then students used watercolors to paint the sky. Lastly, students drew houses onto black paper. Students cut these out and glued them to their painting.
I can really see that these Kindergartners are almost ready for first grade. Their drawing and cutting skills have come a long way this year. I am so impressed with their art!
