Boomerang painting was on the agenda for today and we couldn’t of picked a better afternoon to spend indoors getting creative. The rain came down outside as we kept cozy and warm in Room 1.
Lamingtons and chocolate fingers were the perfect Australian treat to spike the sugar levels and get our creative juices flowing.
The traditional Australian boomerang has been historically used for hunting, as well as sport and entertainment. They are commonly thought of as an Australian icon, and come in various shapes and sizes with all sorts of beautiful, colourful designs. In Aboriginal culture it is common to see the style of painting where a lot of tiny dots are perfectly painted to create specific shapes. These shapes or symbols often represent things relevant to aboriginal culture.
There was some great takes on the traditional patterns and also some with Byron Bay flair. They all looked great!
Now to take them to the beach and test them out!!
