Students learnt about aboriginal painting, traditional techniques, storytelling symbols and showed their artistic talent in our recent boomerang painting activity.
When aboriginal artists paint it is typically from a bird’s-eye perspective looking down onto the land. From a high viewpoint everything starts to look like a dot, hence the iconic dot painting style. Symbols are used to tell a story, for example concentric circles often represent a campsite.
Some students went with the traditional Aboriginal painting style and earthy tones, while others went with their personal style, colours and technique.
Marina and Hamilton played music, and everyone got to work decorating their boomerang.
The final painted boomerangs were all unique in design and exhibited the creative talent of our students.
