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.

Painting Again

I love summer because I have time to paint.  During the school year, I spend so much time planning lessons that I have little time for my own art.  It is wonderful to have time to paint again.  This painting is for my sister's birthday.

Summer Clay Lessons

This summer I am teaching clay lessons at the local community center.  I have a mix of ages in this class.  They are anywhere from five to ten years old.  Here are just a few of their creations.  

 I just love my student's creativity.  These are just wonderful!

Giraffes, Kindergarten

Recently my students took a field trip to the zoo, so I thought it would be fun to create giraffes.  I had my students draw the giraffes with a black oil pastel.  Then, students used liquid watercolors to paint their giraffes. 
I think these are cute!
