Kindergarten Dots. I read the book "The Dot" and we talked about how art can start with a simple dot. Each child then gets to make a dot of their own. When they are finished we glue it to a gold colored paper and use gold marker to make swirls. They frame it in "swirly gold" just like the art teacher in the story does.
These 3-5th graders discovered the traditional artwork of Australia as we learned about Aboriginal Art. Aboriginal means “first” or “original.” This artwork, often found on cave walls and pieces of tree bark, was created by the original inhabitants of Australia. Unusual patterns made from tiny dots filled the space surrounding it, creating an Aboriginal “Dot painting.”
