"As a kinder and 1st project we read the book The Dot. A cute story about a little girl who discovers art through a simple series of dot paintings. The students were able to paint their own dot, or not-a-dot, with watercolors. This was a nice simple opportunity for students to use paints and learn the expectations for using watercolors. Ask them why brushes don't like bad hair days!"
always loved the idea of the dot, but LOVE the positive/ negative spin on this!
