    Read the book The Dot and we talk 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. Kindergarten
