History Detectives episode that explains the history of face jugs. I often show this video to my students at the beginning of this lesson.
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 3rd graders have been rocking our outer space themed art lesson! Their creativity always surprised me.
After their planets were drawn, students cut their planets out, and glued them to a piece of black paper. The white dots in the background were simply done by splatter painting.

My 3rd graders created these beautiful clay cupcakes. Students used the pinch pot technique to create the top and bottom of their cupcakes. The bottom of the cupcake was placed in a silicone cupcake mold to create the ridges, and look more realistic. Details were added later. It is important students score and slip all details, otherwise many pieces fall off.

Students then create their own face pots by using slabs and coils. I always emphasize the importance of scoring and slipping. This is the first year that I have not had a single eye ball fall off the pots. I guess they listened well this year.

http://youngschoolart.blogspot.com/2016/10/2nd-gradesilhouettes.html?m=1. This took two classes to complete. In the first class, students created the watercolor background. We discussed warm and cool colors to create the background. During the second class, students used black sharpies to create silhouettes.
