I love this story! Very motivating for teachers who are looking for ways to inspire children and to help them develop their interests and potential.
You can watch it in Spanish here : El punto
Vashti may not be able to draw, but she can at least make a dot. Her art teacher encourages her to sign her picture, which Vashti does scornfully. When she sees the dot framed above her art teacher’s desk she decides that she can make a better dot. Soon V ashti is making big dots and small dots, red dots, blue dots, and purple dots. At the school art show everyone admires Vashti’s dots and she realizes that art is about more than being able to draw.
