This month, we celebrated International Dot Day in our classes. Dot Day is inspired by the wonderful story in The Dot by Peter H. Reynolds. In The Dot, Vashti discovers that she was an artist all along and just had to believe in herself and to open her mind as she makes her dot paintings. I love Vashti's story because in the art room we never say the word "can't", instead we say "I'll try," and Vashti starts the story by saying "I can't draw!" When she opens her mind and starts to make her mark she discovers that she can draw and much more. In each class, we read the story and talked about Vashti and her journey and we combined Dot Day with our first color project, color wheels!
