Artist Painting

Janelle Barela, Art Teacher

This month in the art room, students learned about International Dot Day and created art
inspired by the book The Dot written by Peter H. Reynolds. International Dot Day is a global
celebration of creativity, courage, and collaboration. It began when teacher Terry Shay
introduced his classroom to Peter H. Reynolds’ book The Dot on September 15th, 2009 and has
been celebrated every year, on the same day. All students continue to work on their drawing skills by following these Elements of Art: Line, Shape, Form, Space, and Value.
