SHS Art: Aboriginal Style Dot Paintings

Aboriginal-dot-art

Seward High Art Students looked South to Aboriginal Australians for inspiration for a painting project.  The indeginous people of Australia have been creating works of art covered in dots for tens of thousands of years.  They dip sticks into pigment to stamp out dots historically on bark, rocks, logs, and today on canvases.  These dot patterns tell stories and map out journeys.

 

SHS Art Students created paintings for the National Oceans Science Bowl Art Show with Ocean themes .  We drew out our designs, painting solid color down, and then used paint pens to decorate with dots.  This was a super fun project and they all did a great job!
