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.

We won 5,000 dollars!

One of my schools won a 5,000 art grant from Bounty paper towels. Our PTA president signed us up for the contest, and then people voted for the school on Facebook. The school with the most votes won. We did not win the grand prize, which was 25,000 dollars, but we were a finalist and therefore got 5,000 dollars. Along with the money, Bounty sent their Art Bus to my school. This morning, a big pink bus drove into the school's parking lot filled with art supplies. Each class rotated in and out of the bus until all of the classes got a chance to experience the Art bus.
One of the stations inside the bus was a bubble painting machine. Bubbles came out of the top and onto the paper underneath. Students wore ponchos to keep the paint from getting on their clothes. Outside of the bus, there were tables set up where the students could draw while they waited for their turn to go inside the bus. The students really enjoyed today. Some of them told me that this was the most fun they have ever had! This was truly awesome.

  4. Yes, I got to spend the whole day with the art bus. I spent most of the day helping the kids put the ponchos on and off. The best part of the day was seeing the excitement of the kids.
