Mulitcultural Art: Australian Aboriginal Dot Painting For Kids

Our Multicultural Art Lessons this week had a focus on Australia and Aboriginal Dot Paintings.

These are so much fun. Relatively easy for kids of most ages to do, they also offer great results for those that perservere.

We have done some Aboriginal Dot Painting in the past and this post shows the process in slightly more detail for anyone wanting to give it a go.

It's quite a theraputic process too, something to do with the kids and not just watch them do it.

A 1 hour lesson wasn't quite enough for B to finish his. He ended up spending quite a bit of time at home on this piece.

K's adorable little echnida looks like he should be in a picture book story.

As always we are loving our Art classes.

This is beautiful! I also liked the explanation of the technique in your other post - perhaps we can try it too with template like that.

This is absolutely wonderful. I hope to try this with my girls. I had a chance to go to Alice Springs and see original pieces which were so stunning.

Great pictures they both did so well. I haven't made it to Australia yet but it is on my list of places to go:)
