What is Dot Day?
Dot Day is an international celebration of art, creativity, and courage. Inspired by author Peter H. Reynolds' book The Dot, a teacher introduced The Dot to his classroom in 2009 and started the now international celebration of Dot Day. Children and adults alike are encouraged to "make their mark" and explore the power and potential of creativity. Millions of people around the world celebrate Dot Day every September, and you can too!
