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.

City Prints/Reflections, 5th Grade
I stole this lesson idea from the blog, Laugh Paint Create. My students have recently been studying reflections in math class, so I thought this was a perfect integration.
To begin this lesson, I had my students use watercolors to paint their paper. Next, we did a basic Styrofoam print. Students drew a city on a piece of Styrofoam and then printed it onto the top half of their paper. To get the reflection, I had my students fold their paper in half while the ink was still wet.
