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.

Summer Art, preschool

This summer I am teaching several classes at the local community center. This week, I taught a preschool art class. This is a drop in art class where parents and children (ages 2-4) come and create a art project.
Since July 4th is this weekend, I thought creating firework artwork was very appropriate. To create the fireworks, I put a blob of waterdown tempera paint on each child's painting. Then students used straws and blew the paint in many directions. The buildings were glued on, and windows were added.
These turned out so cool.


  1. Great ideas Holly! I really like this! Might do it with my mini's at home:)
