Learn about the indigenous people of Australia using the PowerPoint below. In school, we create dot paintings in the style of Aboriginal rock paintings and artworks. Everyone has different resources at home, but if you do have some paint, dipping a cotton-wool bud or rubber ended pencil makes dots perfectly! If not, dotting with felt tips or pencils would work well too.
We would have spent some time practising drawing from observation, using different media (pencil, biros, felts, fineliners, paints, charcoal, chalk). Again, use whatever you have at home! We link these art skills to our Australia learning, practising drawing pictures of Australian landmarks and animals. We usually make a big display of this artwork, so if you do complete some, send it to us and we'll upload it to our class page.
