We are starting the new school in art. Like creAtivity, positivity is contagious! This WILL BE the BEST school YEAR EVER... PERIOd!
So let all pull out our arms and go "circle circle dot dot" cause you got your negativity shot! Lose those blues and get happy NOW!
We will be using the simplest idea to begin our Art Year. A DOT. Wassily Kandinsky is one of the famous artist we will be studying that uses dots as his subject. He said, "Everything starts with a dot."
We will also be looking at the amazing boo, The Dot by Peter Renolds.

Intro lesson (first day)
1 Dot, 3 Circles Painting
Mrs. Zarella's kinder class (above)
Mrs. Meleski's 4th grade class (above)
We started with a dot in the middle of our notecard & made it better using markers.
After we were done, creations were displayed in a "gold" swirly frame on our mini-masterpiece wall.
This can be done on "post it notes" or any square piece of paper. Locate center of square, begin there to create a circular design on paper. Be creative. These will be connected into a group mural.
Teacher Example by Mrs. Morgan
Begin by tracing circles of various sizes onto scrap & colored paper. Cut out circles and lay in size ordered stacks.
Glue down larger circles and stack smaller on top.
You can also make circles with circles (using hole punch).
