Each one turned out different, and the students are so proud of them! This is one of my favorite assignments from this school year! We will be displaying these at International Night at my school.
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.

My fifth graders have been working hard on their clay pots in the last few weeks. To begin, I showed my students this History Detectives Video, by PBS, to introduce the history of face pots. This video explains how face pots can be traced back to African Americans during the mid 1800's.

I teach this lesson every year, and I always love the results. For this lesson, students create a two sided portrait. One side must be human with correct proportions, and the other side can be animal, monster, or alien. These were painted with tempera paint.
