Grade three moved on from
Charcoal cave paintings to aboriginal art from Australia. We've noticed some connections between the two historic types of art: both groups of people created art supplies from natural things they could find easily and both examples used art to preserve their cultural stories, beliefs, dreams and values! We're on our second project creating symbols using the dot techniques we've seen from
Australia. This week students were busy practicing techniques, sharpening the sharpest pencils in the world, and drawing connections to our own cultures and art at home like Ada's aboriginal art piece she brought in to share today!
