4th, 5th and 6th Grade Australian Aboriginal Dot Paintings

For this lesson, the students created paintings inspired by Australian Aboriginal folktales,known as Dreamtime stories. They explored this website, http://www.abc.net.au/dustechoes/dustEchoesFlash.htm, and watched animated versions of a number of different Dreamtime stories. After writing summaries of the stories they watched, they created sketches of ideas for a painting inspired by the stories they watched/read. They chose their best idea and created a painting using a variety of dots and lines, just like the Australian Aboriginal painters. Here are some of the beautiful, creative paintings they made!
