Australia in art

Australian Aboriginal art is very fun project for the kids of all ages.

We have talked about the dream-like qualities of the artworks, about the symbols and hidden meanings in them, the patterns and colors… and then every child picked one Australian animal and cut it out of black paper. They glued it onto an Earth-tone paper and used q-tips dipped in paint to fill the rest of the page with fluid shapes and patterns. It was a little challenging for the smaller kids (5-6) to fill the whole page but they all did it… and spent the rest of the time trying to make a paper boomerang that would fly.
