I'm going to read the book to the children and then I'm going to give the kids the yellow shape of Spot:
They will fill in the feet, toes and face with a black colored pencil.
Then they will us a spot to paint the spots - or a dot to paint the dots!
These are small pom poms dipped in paint and used to "Print" the spots.
We'll glue Spot to a white piece of paper and add the juggling balls or spots with a little trail behind them to show movement or action. I'll demonstrate this and we'll discuss how artists and cartoonists use this technique.
The final step is to glue a black Pom Pom nose on Spot.
Here is the pattern for Spot:
I'm going to introduce complimentary colors as I paint my spots, trying to put blue and orange near each other and also red and green. Purple will go with the yellow background. All three sets of complimentary colors are on Spot.
