Getting artsy painting Boomerangs!
On Wednesday, our students enjoyed channeling their inner artist whilst painting boomerangs. The students learnt that boomerangs are an important tool in Australian Indigenous culture & enjoyed getting to paint their very own boomerang!
Boomerangs come in many different shapes and sizes, however, they are best known for their curved design with one side that is rounded with a lip to help the boomerang return, and the other side flat.
The boomerang is a thrown tool, typically constructed with aerofoil sections and designed to spin about an axis perpendicular to the direction of its flight. A returning boomerang is designed to return to the thrower, while a non-returning boomerang is designed as a weapon to be thrown straight and is traditionally used for hunting.
We were proud to see the students getting creative & even googling many traditional boomerang designs which include geographical specific artwork & dot paintings.
We hope to see the students learning more about Australia’s traditional culture!
