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.

Musical Art, 5th Grade
I did this project a few weeks ago with my third graders, but I loved it so much that I did it again with my fifth graders. These are our Jazz Paintings. Students drew one large instrument, and then added designs to create motion. Everything was then painted in tempera paint. If you are looking for a good cross curricular lesson, this lesson ties into Science. Students generally learn about sound and sound waves in science. My students learn about this near the end of the year, but talk to the classroom teacher and find out when they will be covering this topic. It is always nice when art integrates into the other subjects.
