International Dot Day, Sept. 15th-ish

So far this year, 120 students in Kindergarten, 6th, 9th,
and HS drawing classes have participated in Inter-
national Dot Day.

According to thedotclub.org,
"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."

In the words of  The Dot author, Peter H. Reynolds,
"Imagine the power and potential of millions of people
around the world connecting, collaborating, creating
and celebrating all that creativity inspires and invites."
