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.

Music, 3rd Grade

 In science class, the students have been learning about sound, so I thought this would be a great time to create music art.  To introduce this project, we discussed how sound has movement.  We also discussed ways to create movement in art.  For this project, I asked students to draw one large instrument.  After this, students added movement to their drawing by drawing lines, patterns, and shapes. 
Once the drawing was completed, I had the students paint the background.  They could only choose one color.  After the background, I had my students choose a color for their instrument.  For this, I had my students think about warm and cool colors.  If their background was cool, then they had to choose a warm color for their instrument.  If their background was warm, they had to choose a cool color for their instrument.  Once their instrument was painted, students worked on painting the other details in their picture.  Lastly, students used black paint to outline.  

I just love these!  They are so fun and colorful.
