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.

Pre-K, Polka Dot Owls
Pre-K students are adorable, but I have always found it difficult to come up with art lessons for these little ones. Thank goodness for sites like Pinterest, where 90 percent of my Pre-K art ideas come from. I found this project on pinterest, unfortunately I do not know what blog or website it was pinned from, because it does not seem to lead back to the original site.
This lesson requires quite a few pre-cut shapes, and the art teacher in me almost cringes just saying pre-cut shapes. As a general rule, I do not like pre-cutting anything for my students because I prefer my students to create their own work. However, after several years of teaching Pre-K students, I have come to the conclusion that pre-cut shapes are a necessity at the beginning of the school year. For most of these students, holding scissors is a brand new concept, and it will take a good portion of the year before they are proficient with them.
