One of the best things about being the art teacher is that the first day of the school year just picks up where we left off last year. Besides a few new faces each year and a few changes in the art room we really only need to review instead of establishing routines and procedures.
I decided to start the year off with International Dot Day. I showed the kids this video of the book being read so they can see and appreciate the illustrations. We discussed the moral of the story The Dot by Peter Reynolds which is just trying and seeing where it takes you!
Students were pretty excited to be able to paint on the first day of art class too!

I picked up most of the spray paint at Real Deals- just $1!
