The 5th graders have been trying out artwork in the style of ancient Aborigines.  They first started with printmaking- either making an etching of their handprint, or of an x-ray animal.  Instead of printing with the traditional ink and brayer, the students printed with markers and damp paper, allowing for some pretty neat effects in the final print!


Dot paintings are a popular trend among modern Aborigines.  Thanks to an anonymous parent donation (thank you!) of interior designer linoleum floor samples, I was able to give each student a faux stone to paint on.  Using the dot method of pointillism, the created patterns and designs on stone.
