Aboriginal Art

Primary students continued exploring ancient art by learning about Aboriginal art. They learned that Aborigines have lived in Australia much longer than anyone else. From earliest times they used color to decorate their bodies, rocks, wooden and clay pots, spears, boomerangs and shields. Crushed rocks and flowers were used as paints. Students decorated a paper plate in a similar style used  in ancient times and today in Australia. Students were instructed to divide their plates into sections and paint each section with a bright color. Once the background had dried they then painted a simple design with black paint. The final touch was to outline the black lines with small white dots. I love how these turned out 🙂

About stephwheatley

Formerly from Britain, I have lived in the USA since 1989. My qualifications are in library science, but I've had a passion for all things artsy and crafty for as long as I can remember! I became the Primary Art Teacher at Shady Oak Christian School in 2009 and am thoroughly enjoying myself. I teach students at both Shady Oak Christian School and Shady Oak Primary School. It's wonderful to be able to share my passion at a place that believes in the importance of learning through creativity.
