Introduction to Aboriginal Art

Today we tried out a few techniques from Aboriginal art. First we looked at some art works and picked out the main themes we saw in them - lots of dots, wavy lines, and circles. The children used a reference book to identify and find the meaning of some Aboriginal symbols. We used our hand-prints along with symbols of waterholes, camps, rivers, animal tracks and sand hills. We worked with acrylic paints, brushes and round sticks.
