We are artists. Everything starts with… "a DOT"
As a starting point we read a story called "The Dot" by Peter H. Reynolds.

It talks about a little boy who was very sad because he didn´t know how to draw. His teacher asked him to draw a dot, and sign, as artists do. His teacher puts his "dot" in a frame, so everybody could see it, and this makes him feel very proud. He then started to experiment with all kinds of dots and colours, encouraging others to feel confident to draw, paint and create, realizing we can all be artists.

The children brought in old markers, from which we removed both ends, and put alcohol with a dropper on one side, letting it drip and form a dot on their page. This also led us to talk about how every line or drawing that we make starts with a DOT. They really enjoyed making different dots according to the markers they chose, as well as the amount of alcohol they poured into it.
