International Dot Day!

September 15th is International Dot Day.  Inspired by the book, The Dot, by Peter H. Reynolds, students all over the world create dot inspired art in order to celebrate our unique creativity!     Here are some of the dots made by our elementary students.  In addition to demonstrating their creative thinking, students also had to show their knowledge of materials and color theory.  All students, whether they were using paint, crayons or oil pastels, were only allowed to use the primary colors; red, yellow, and blue.  They needed to mix these in various combinations and ratios to make other colors.
