"Imagine the power and potential of millions of people around the world connecting, collaborating, creating and celebrating all that creativity inspires and invites. I hope you will join the growing global community of creativity champions using their talents, gifts and energy to move the world to a better place" -Peter H. Reynolds
Today Drawing & Painting II students worked on their first journal assignment of the new school year. We watched the short animated movie The Dot. It is a simple story about a girl who is feeling uninspired and is encouraged by her art teacher to make a mark on her paper. That simple mark becomes a dot and before you know it, she has created a entire series of brave and courageous dots. Through this story we learn that a simple mark on paper can lead us somewhere new and help us realize how creative we really are.
Students and artists all around the world celebrate International Dot Day around September 15th each year.
"The arts celebrate multiple perspectives. One of their large lessons is that there are many ways to see and interpret the world."
