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.

Notans, 4th Grade
I have seen Notans posted on many blogs. Most recently, I saw this lesson posted on Dali's Moustache. I really like this lesson because it's a great combination of math and art. My fourth graders have been learning about flips in math, so this lesson is a great art integration lesson.
To begin this lesson, we start with a simple black square. Students then cut very simple designs on each side. These designs are then flipped out to create the Notan.
