“The dot” is all about a girl named Vaschti. When she was in art class she got frustrated because she thought she couldn’t draw until her teacher told her to make a dot and see where it takes her. She jabbed the paper hard and left. The next day her dot was above her teacher’s desk. She thought she could make a much better dot than that so she went experimenting and made a big masterpiece. They showed her art at an art show. A young boy thought she was great but also thought he couldn’t draw. But Vaschti told him to draw a line and sign his name on it which soon made him determined too.
When I reread “the dot” I knew it was all about determination. Vaschti was determined to make a great drawing. She kept making so many great dots. She said, “I can make a better dot than that!” She also never gave up to make the best dot. She was determined to show people her dot so she entered in an art show. So I think “the dot” is all about determination.
When I thought about “the dot” it totally reminded me of the time when I made a little sketch and showed it to the class. They thought it was good. I used to hate drawing, but now I love it so much. Also, in art class my teacher thought my sculpture was great so she entered mine in an art show. I might want to become an artist.
Whatever you’re doing, you can do it as long as you’re determined and put your mind to it. You can do anything!
