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 finally completed the clay tile mural today. Attaching these tiles was extremely time consuming. First I had the custodian screw a large piece of plywood into the wall. Then, I used tile adhesive to attach each tile. Lastly, I used grout to fill in the spaces. This was my first time tiling a wall, so it was definitely a learning experience.
Deep Space Sparkle. With out the help of her blog, and detailed Ceramic Tile Booklet, I would never have been able to finish this project. If you are planning a project like this, you should definitely check out her site.

Clay tile mural that I am doing with my fifth graders. This mural is in the style of Keith Haring. It has taken a lot longer than expected to get all of these tiles fired and out of the kiln. (Between teaching at three schools and taking a graduate course, I have been extremely busy). Today I finally got the last of the tiles finished. This mural will have 130 tiles, and it looks like it will be about 8 feet tall.
