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.

Art Show

 This week the county is sponsoring an art show.  Every school in the county had two panels to hang artwork on, and it is displayed at a local mall.  Here are a few pictures from my school's art display.

Black History Month Art, 3rd Grade

 The public library contacted me a few months ago, and asked me to have my students create artwork for black history month.  This is what they created, and now it is on display at the library.

 I found the idea for this lesson at http://learn.michenerartmuseum.org/2011/02/an-over-and-above-lesson-for-students/.  I adapted the original lesson to fit a younger audience, and to fit the black history theme.

Students began by painting a self portrait on the top portion of their paper.  Students then had to choose a famous quote from an African American to display on the bottom of their paper. Overall, I  think these turned out wonderful!
