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.
Next we will be making maps and telling stories with Aboriginal art. Watch this space.
