2nd Grade Australian Aboriginal Art
Since the students are learning about folktales in their classrooms, we made paintings based on an Australian Aboriginal folktale in art. The students listened to a story about how the sun was created and came up with ideas about how they can represent the story in a painting. The students learned about how Australian Aboriginal artists used many dots to create their paintings. Using Q-tips instead of brushes, the 2nd graders created colorful paintings inspired by the story they heard. They did an amazing job!
