National Polka Dot Day!



Did you know it is National Polka Dot Day? Polka dots got their start to popularity on fabric in the 19th century. Fast forward to the 20's and 30's an American culture that fell in love with dots. From actresses to artists, the polka dot was the fashion! Now polka dots seem to be a retro fad but they keep appearing in so many places.


In the art world, Andy Warhol made them famous in the many paintings he created using dots. Pointillism is an art form using dots to create images. Even Mandala painting uses dots!



Be sure to use polka dots in your art today!


Quote of the Day -
