At the end of the school year, I had some of my fourth and fifth graders paint this chair. This was a fun filler project to help fill time the last two week of school.
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.

Artome to frame the artwork. It was really simple. Basically, I sent artwork to Artome, which I labeled by student name, grade, and class. They framed the artwork, and brought it the night of the show. Artome even set the entire show up for me. We sold the frames for $25 dollars a piece, and parents were able to take their child's framed artwork home that night. After the show was over, Artome dismantled the entire show and mailed the unsold artwork back to the school about two weeks later. Artome only charged us for the frames that were sold.

Students began by creating sculptures out of bottles, foil, cardboard, and other recycled materials. After this, students covered their sculptures in plaster wrap. Lastly, students painted their sculptures with tempera paint.

My school has been working on a recycling theme this year. For the last few months, students have been learning about being Green and doing cross-curricular assignments based on this theme. To tie into this, I had my art students collect scraps of fabric. Most of the fabric came from old clothes, blankets, or sheets. We then weaved it through chicken wire. Here are the results.
