First day project for everyone!!! After reading "The Dot" by Peter Reynolds, students create their own dots framed in "swirly gold." This was my first week activity and the dots now cover the bulletin board in the art room with the quote "Just make a mark and see where it takes you." - Peter Reynolds

The Dot by Peter H. Reynolds - Picture book on video
Very NEAT!! Students read the story "The Dot" by Peter Reynolds. It is a story about believing in yourself and believing in your work. They create an image starting with only "one dot" on their paper. They then turn the dot into whatever they want, letting their imagination & intuition guide them. Students should start right away with permanent markers as there can be be no "mistakes" in this project. After completing their drawings they can fill them in with tempera paint!
