the dot

Her teacher smiled. "Just make a mark and see where it takes you."

Art class is over, but Vashti is sitting glued to her chair in front of a blank piece of paper. The words of her teacher are a gentle invitation to express herself. But Vashti can’t draw - she’s no artist. To prove her point, Vashti jabs at a blank sheet of paper to make an unremarkable and angry mark. "There!" she says.

Turns out, a simple mark on a page can become a masterpiece if you let it.

This story is great for little ones who "know" they aren't good at something, or aren't willing to try something new!
