Boomerang Painting! 18 October PM

We were all very happy to have blue skies back yesterday afternoon!

IMG_7486

We were even happier that this meant we could enjoy yesterdays Boomerang Painting activity outside in sunshine 🙂

We had some examples to follow and the explanations of symbols traditionally used by aboriginals to tell stories with their paintings.

Everyone got really creative and came up with their own unique ideas; I was very impressed with all the end results!

Morning Boomerang Painting! – 17 October

Yesterday morning we had a very fun, colourful and educational activity – Boomerang painting! We gathered in the student lounge (as it was raining outside) and looked at some examples of work by other artists. The style in which they were painted sees many, many tiny dots, perfectly painted into various shapes. These shapes can be ‘read’ as they each symbolise different things – for example, a tiny circle, within two more circles represents a campsite and a large dot, surrounded by smaller dots represents a star! See some examples here below…

We all really enjoyed the painting process! We all started with one base colour and as we waited for that to dry, came up with our designs. They were all so different! See some of the progress here…

In the end, we were all very happy with our finished pieces! We were so engrossed, I think we would all have happily stayed painting for another hour!

Morning Coffee Club – 16 October

Yesterday morning we gathered outside in the fresh air for our weekly morning Coffee Club. We chatted all things Byron as well as finding out more about each other and our native countries. We intended playing a game of Uno but instead, got caught up with our chat! IMG_7445

We learned loads of new and exciting information – from our best-known foods (and how to make them the correct way!), to how many people inhabit our homelands. Google was our friend for finding out this particular bit of information… 🙂

IMG_7448

I was also very pleasantly surprised to meet our Swiss student Shannon, whose name I immediately recognized – named after our longest river in Ireland – The Shannon! Looking forward to catching up with these guys (and some others who are out of shot) next week for some more interesting chats, facts, games and of course, Tim Tams! 🙂
