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.

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.

Karla Gerard. Her artwork is bright, colorful folk art, and really resonates with young students. My students focused on drawing landscapes with patterns. These were painted with tempera paint.

Considering that I gave the students little guidance on how to draw a person, I feel my students did an amazing job! My plan is to do another self portrait at the end of the school year, so we can compare their growth.

This is very simple to complete. All you need to do is have students draw and color a landscape on the top half of their paper with washable markers (You can also use liquid watercolor paint if you want). Then just spray the bottom half of the paper with water, fold, and rub. I think the results were wonderful!
