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.

Rainy Days, Kindergarten
My Kindergarten students have been learning about weather in their science class. I thought this was a great time to do a rain art lesson. I began this lesson by handing out stencils for the umbrellas. The umbrellas were traced with pencil and colored with pastels. The rainy background was done with liquid watercolors. I encouraged the students to paint in vertical lines, so that it looked more like rain. Some students got this, some did not. However, they all turned out great anyway.
