Aboriginal Artwork

Aboriginal art of Australia is the oldest art form still practiced today. It is very unusual compared to other art forms, and quite interesting to look at and learn about. Aboriginal art incorporates organic symbols, pointallism (dots - lots of dots!), and patterns with amazing and sometimes awe-inspiring results. 

We decided to try our hand at doing our own Aboriginal-inspired art. This lesson, prepared and lead by volunteer Erica, was fun, educational, and very successful! 

We learned what Aboriginal art is, why it is created, and how it is done. You can learn more at 10 Facts About Aboriginal Art, then try it for yourself!
