At Cockenzie Nursery we love to learn about the world and all the people who live here. We celebrate different ethnic backgrounds, religions and cultures. This week we are going to explore the seven Continents of the world.
Our first stop is Australia all the way over on the other side of the world! The indigenous people of Australia are the Aboriginal people. They have many famous Aboriginal artists. One particular style of painting they do is dot painting. They often use very earthy colours in their paintings such as reds, oranges, browns and yellows. In the Hub this week we were exploring different Aboriginal paintings and creating our own.
Challenge – Can you make your own Aboriginal dot painting?
You will need some paper, paints and either cotton buds or the end of a paintbrush to make your dots.
