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.

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.

Anyone who is an art teacher knows how wonderful wet wipes are. Students can clean their hands and tables without ever having to use the sink. Really, they are the best invention EVER! Wipes make my life so much easier that I often end up using my own money to purchase them.
