Instructions: Practice drawing dots. Use dots to make a picture.

Materials: Drawing paper and drawing implements such as pencils, fine-tipped pens or markers, or charcoal.

Keywords: Dot

Step 1: Draw a tiny dot, a medium-sized dot, and a large dot similar to those shown below.
Step 2: Draw more dots. What is the difference between a dot and a line? Painter Paul Klee said, 'A line is a dot that went for a walk.' Take a dot for a walk to make a line.
Step 3: Fetch a fresh piece of paper, and create a picture out of dots. The technique painting with dots is called 'pointillism.'

Georges Seurat used pointillism to create his works of art. Note how Seurat used pointillism to create, 'The Eiffel Tower,' shown below.
