Sure, once we read The Dot, as a class, the kids traced a circle with an empty can for their shape. I gave them the option of painting inside the circle or outside. We used Prang glitter watercolors for a nice shimmer. This was a great one day project! The radial balance piece was done on watercolor paper with crayola watercolors. They were aloud to create an abstract picture with all colors except brown and black.
