"The Dot" by Peter Reynolds - Kindergarten Primary Color Theory

I love kinder art - there is something about their freedom of lines, not planning their marks, even down to how they write their names.  They don't have a 'ground' yet, no real understanding of 'correct' direction - love them.

If you have never read 'The Dot" by Peter Reynolds - read it and see how these were inspired.

The students drew 10 dots, signed their paper like Vashti in the book, then used only primary colors to make more dots!  Sure enough about 5 minutes into it I hear kids saying how they got green, orange, purple and sharing with their friends how to make those colors!
