'The Dot' by Peter Reynolds
Recently, fourth class read the story of 'The Dot' by Peter Reynolds.
***SPOILER ALERT*** This story is about a young girl, Vashti, who thinks she can't draw. Her teacher tells her to "make a mark and see where it takes you". Vashti does this, and soon the dot she has made on her page develops and develops and develops until Vashti has made many masterpieces that are showcased at her school art show!
In fourth class we were shocked when teacher's only instruction to us for our art was to make a black dot on our page. After that we could do anything we liked! We made the solar system, flowers, numbers, people, abstract art, and much more. Have a look at some of our very own masterpieces.
