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 have been working on a Master's degree through Boston University. Most of the classes are online. However, this summer, I went to Boston to take a few studio courses. I took two classes: Wire Sculpture and Printmaking. All of these techniques were wonderful to learn, however in order to apply them to my elementary classroom, I will need to simplify the techniques and materials.
This last one was a pronto print. It was created by printing a photo on pronto paper using a laser jet printer. Then I used a brayer, and added ink directly to the pronto paper. Next, I used a wet sponge and wiped the pronto paper. It was printed using a press. I am not sure if this is doable for my elementary students. I will have to see if this process works without a press first.
