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. Feel free to browse this blog and borrow any of my art lessons.

Cakes, 2nd Grade
This lesson is a great way to introduce the artist Wayne Thiebaud. For this lesson, I teach my students how to draw a cake with a piece taken out of it. They love this, because they think it makes it look realistic. We draw the cake first, and then color it with oil pastels. After this, I have my students make a symmetrical cake stand out of construction paper. We then glued both the cake and the cake stand to a large piece of black paper.
I think my second graders did a nice job with this lesson!
