Aboriginal Dot Art

In Room 12 we have been learning about Aboriginal Dot art and exploring how they paint stories about the natural world. We have done many experiments in dot art using earbuds as paintbrushes, yet recently some students research taught them that the Aboriginals used sticks to paint. They tested this in class and found them a much better "paintbrush". Soon after most of our class have converted to using sticks to paint. Here are some of our works of art in different stages of progress.

What do you think of our art?

    1. Why was the spaces difficult?
      "inbeten" should be inbetween

    1. It does take patience but that is what makes good art.
      Also, sentences start with a capital letter.

    I realize that using sticks is easier than using air buds. It was hard getting all the spaces and dots to be just right but we gave it a try and succeeded.

    1. That was a clever idea using stick. Why do you think they were better than ear buds?

    2. Devin
      Because a stick is much thinner than a air bud and a air bud make bigger dots
