Now available as DIY kits to go, students can make Aussie Art from the comfort of their home!
Aboriginal Dot Art Boomerang – Make your very own boomerang using “primitive style” tools to paint in the Aboriginal method. You can also choose to create a story on your boomerang by using traditional Aboriginal symbols. Included is an educational handout on the history of the boomerang. *The boomerang is made of very light material so as not to cause injury*
Aboriginal Dot Art Plaque – Wildlife is a huge part of Aboriginal culture. After choosing your animal, bring your wood plaque to life with dot art using “primitive style” tools. Included is an educational handout on the history of Aboriginal dot art.
Aboriginal Dot Art Magnet – Instead of a written language, the Australian Aboriginal people use symbols, dots, circles, animals, cross-hatching, and so on to tell their stories. You will enhance your chosen symbolic background on a canvas magnet with Aboriginal dot art using “primitive style” tools. Included is an educational handout on Aboriginal Dream time.
NGAKA NGAKA (Aboriginal Tic-Tac-Toe Game) – (Look-Look) The first few rounds are played exactly like Tic-Tac-Toe. Players take turns placing stones in the grid with the goal of getting three in a row vertically, horizontally, or diagonally. Students get to decorate their own game pieces and take them home!
