Dot Day Art Gallery

Our children have been celebrating Dot Day by holding an Art Gallery for parents.

International Dot Day, a global celebration of creativity, courage, and collaboration, began when teacher Terry Shay introduced his classroom to Peter H. Reynolds’ book The Dot on September 15, 2009. 

The Dot is the story of a caring teacher who dares a doubting student to trust in her own abilities by being brave enough to “make her mark”. What begins with a small dot on a piece of paper becomes a breakthrough in confidence and courage, igniting a journey of self-discovery and sharing, which has gone on to inspire countless children and adults around the globe. 

We have celebrated the 20th anniversary of this event with each class exploring a different artist before they then created their masterpiece.  We had some very interesting pieces ranging from pottery items, sewing into pictures, collage and coiling.  A fantastic display by all. 

Well done to everyone and thank you to Mrs Collins and Mrs Joy for leading this.
