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.

Silhouette Houses, 4th Grade

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. 

Here are a few silhouette houses my fourth graders created a few weeks ago.  To begin this lesson, we discussed what a silhouette was, and looked at photos of silhouette houses.  Students also created a few sketches of houses for practice.

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.

  1. How pretty paintings! These paintings are looking so cute. Hey, if you have knowledge about Aboriginal Art paintings then please give me some guidelines to learn this art style. I am really very interested in this type of art!
