ALL ABOUT THE DOT and Peter’s CREATRILOGY

Vashti is not an artist. She jabs at a blank sheet of paper to make an unremarkable and angry mark. “There” she says. That one little dot marks the beginning of Vashti’s journey of surprise and self-discovery.

Ramon loves to draw and it makes him happy but, in one split second everything changes. A single reckless remark by Ramon’s older brother, Leon, turns Ramon’s carefree sketches into joyless struggles. Luckily for Ramon his little sister, Marisol, sees the world differently. She opens his eyes to something a lot more valuable than getting things just “right.”

Marisol loves to paint. So when her teacher asks her to help make a mural for the school library, she can’t wait to begin! But how can Marisol make a sky without blue paint?

ABOUT INTERNATIONAL DOT DAY
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.

And each year on International Dot Day – with the help of people just like you – the inspiration continues. What started as a story in the pages of a book is transforming teaching and learning around the world as people of all ages re-discover the power and potential of creativity in all they do.

We’re excited about sharing the livestream on Friday. I’m bringing some groups into the library and would like to let the teachers know how long the presentation will last. Can you give me a time frame please?
