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.

This project was a stretch to get done in one hour, but the kids worked hard, and I think they turned out great. If you have the luxury of being able to stretch it out for more than one class, it would be even better. The only issue with doing this project with such a young age is that their little fingers can't cut the cardboard. I ended up cutting most of the buns out for them.

We started by drawing a large house build out of rectangles (rulers were optional). I showed the students multiple ways to draw windows and doors. Also, I encouraged students to add porches, or balconies, or other details to their pictures. We outlined everything with black crayon and painted with watercolors.
