Our Introduction to Aboriginal Art

We have been looking at Aboriginal art and we found out a little bit about it. They paint using Earth colours and use dots to create their pictures. The dots are made using their fingers or sticks instead of paintbrushes. They don't have paint either, they make the paint or dye from natural things around them like flowers, bark or fruit.
They tell stories using pictures they create of when the Earth was made.

We had a go at making an Aboriginal pen picture of a familiar object or creature. Have a look!
