At its first meeting of the year, high school Art Club members celebrated International Dot Day by working collaboratively and painting dots, of course!  International Dot Day was inspired by a children’s book “The Dot” written by Peter Reynolds.  The book  tells the story of a young girl in art class who feels she “can’t draw” but then is encouraged to “just make her mark” and she does — through dots. And slowly she begins to feel confidence and joy in the process of making her mark and creating her dots.  International Dot Day invites everyone to  imagine the power and potential of millions of people around the world connecting, collaborating, creating and celebrating all that creativity inspires.  Celebrations are global and take many different forms — everything from painting, creating videos about dots, to baking cookies frosted with dots.  Student artists here worked together and created dots of different sizes using different media.  “It was so fun to all be working together making our creative marks with dots and ending up with this huge dot mural!” commented one Art Club member.  Thirty-eight students participated and the results were, well… rather dotty!  Stop up to see the mural on the second floor of the high school or view the pictures here:

    The dot mural in the hallway looks very nice. It is a nice splash of color in an otherwise bland hallway. Very nice job Art Club.

    I think Dot Day is a very unique holiday. I think it was cool that the Art Club made a project for the international holiday! The Art Club did a very nice job and it looks very well!

    I thought that this was a great way to start off the year at Art Club. The hallway was really bright and looks amazing. Who knew that one dot could go a long way?! Keep up the great work Art Club!

    This article is phenomenal and I also participated in the creating of this huge dot mural. I also do believe that anyone can be a artist and can make their own mark. Even though this international dot day is new to me, I think its fantastic. It also motivates people who never new they could make art can now make their own creations and some art can just be a small dot.

    I went to the meeting where we created our dot art and it was a lot of fun! I wasn’t able to make it to the next two meetings because I was busy with work, but I am extremely excited to continue participating in Art Club this year. Mrs. Kosinski is really supportive of all her students and even those she’s never had before, like me!
