Peter H. Reynolds The Dot
The art class was over, but Vashti sat glued to her chair. Her paper was empty.
Vashtis teacher leaned over the blank paper. Ah! A polar bear in a snow storm, she said. Very funny! said Vashti. I just CANT draw!
Her teacher smiled. Just make a mark and see where it takes you.
Vashti grabbed a felt-tipped pen and gave the paper a good, strong jab. There!
Her teacher picked up the paper and studied it carefully. Hmmmmm.
She pushed the paper torward to Vashti and quietly said, Now sign it.
Vashti thought for a moment. Well, may be I cant draw, but I CAN sign my name.
The next week, when Vashti walked into art class, she was surprised to see what was hanging above her teachers desk. It was the little dot she had drawn – HER DOT! All framed in swirly gold!
Hmmph! I can make a better dot than THAT!
She opened her never-before-used set of watercolors and set to work.
Vashti painted and painted. A red dot. A purple dot. A yellow dot. A blue dot.
The blue mixed with the yellow. She discovered that she could make a GREEN dot. Vashti kept experimenting. Lots of little dots in many colors.
If I can make little dots, I can make BIG dots, too. Vashti splashed her colors with a bigger brush and bigger paper to make a bigger dots.
Vashti even made a dot by NOT painting a dot.
At school art show a few weeks later, Vashtis many dots made quite a splash.
Vashti noticed a little boy gazing up at her. Youre a really great artist. I wish I could draw, he said. I bet you can, said Vashti. Me? No, Not me. I cant draw a straight line with a ruler.
Vashti smiled. She handed the boy a blank sheet of paper. Show me. The boys pencil shook as he drew his line.
Vashti stared at the boys squiggle. And then she said…
