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.

Folk Art, 4th Grade
These beautiful paintings were created by my fourth graders. I based this lesson off of the artwork of Karla Gerard. Her paintings are wonderfully colorful. Click on the link to see her art.
For this lesson, my students focused on drawing farm land. We drew hills, trees, fences, etc. with oil pastels. After this, I asked my students to add patterns to their drawing. Next, we used liquid watercolors to paint our drawings.
