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.

Last week I started an after school art club for my 4th and 5th Graders. I have 30 students in art club, and I have several teachers who have volunteered to help. This was our first art club assignment, which was inspired after the artwork of Keith Haring.
It has been a long time since I have posted new lessons. This is because I have recently started a Master's Degree, and it has taken most of my extra time. I will try to do better though, and post more often.
After that, students created the background with liquid watercolors, and then painted the house with black tempera paint.
I just love that each house looks different.

I began by having students use wadded up newspaper and foil to created the body, head, legs, and tail. Students then added 3 layers of paper mache to their sculpture.
Oodles of Art. Over the years, I have adapted this lesson, and this year the results are amazing.

I have done this lesson several times in the past, but I love the results every year. Here are my results from this year.
