Aboriginal Art

October 9, 2012 · 5 Comments · Art, In The Classroom, Student Post

In term 2 we were learning about the First Settlement in Australia. We watched some My Place and learnt a lot about how aboriginals lived. Ms D showed us some symmetrical Aboriginal paintings. We had a go at making some of our own. Here they are.

Can you see the symmetry in our art? How many lines of symmetry have we used? Please leave a comment and tell us what else you might know about symmetry.

    My name is Mikayla and I am in grade 3 almost in grade 4.

    Your art work is really good. I can not do that.

    Do you like doing art?

    Hey guys,
    Yes I can see the lines of symmetry, but symmetry isn’t my stongest point so I think there might be 1 or 2 lines of symmetry- depending on which painting.
    Kind Regards

      Well done, Phoebe. Yes there would be a different number of symmetry lines depending on the image. Which one of these is your favourite?

    G’day Maddie and Jess,
    What a great post! How did you create the paintings? What are they painted on? They look so vibrant. Did you use any particular techniques?
