What can you do with a bunch of dots?
You don't always have to have an idea in order to create. Interesting and unusual designs and art may be created by first drawing something simple and then using your imagination.
While the students’ eyes were closed they drew thirty-five dots on their papers. Once they opened their eyes, they connected the dots with long lines in order to make irregular shapes. The students looked at their shapes from different angles and after deciding what subject matter their irregular shapes would be, students drew and colored additional lines, shapes and details to complete their imaginative artwork. They were encouraged to title their artwork and to tell stories about it.

Welcome back! It's going to be a fantastic year full of learning, experimenting and creating together! This summer I enjoyed learning about culture, religion, history and art at the Cincinnati Art Museum. Our art museum is one of my favorite places to explore as both educator and student.
I also enjoyed spending time outdoors with friends and family. Experiencing God's beautiful creation refreshes my spirit and inspires my personal artwork. I'm looking forward to hearing about my students' summer adventures and wishing everyone a wonderful school year!
Have a fantastic summer!
