Aboriginal Australian Art

Last week we celebrated Australia Day at English Pocket Gotanda and learned some interesting things about the country.

This week we are continuing in our study of Australia by learning about some Aboriginal Australian art. This distinctive style of art has been practiced in Australia for around 200,000 years.

In the outback in Australia the paints are made from grinding up plants and rocks and mixing them with mud. This gives the paints the distinctive color of the Australian bush land and landscape.



Traditionally it is painted using either the end of a finger or the end of a stick. Today in class we used a q-tip study to make it easier for the students.



Then we’re able create some super creative and interesting pieces of art today and we hope to have them on display at school soon! Please look forward to seeing them.
