Dots Rule!

We are wrapping up our Australian-inspired art at school, and just starting it with the homeschoolers. I am especially thankful to the art ed blog community for introducing me to this book:

book cover of the story the dot, consisting of an illustration of a girl painting a giant orange dot, with the text the dot wirtten in the middle.  author name peter h reynolds is written along the outside lower right edge of the dot. Peter Reynolds even has a website!!

What better book to accompany art lessons on the Australian aborigines’ tribal art? Kindergarten loved this book yesterday, and sat more quietly listening than I have ever seen them. Some of their attempts at Australian-inspired art:

First and Second grades have finished, too:
