Boomerang Painting! 8 August

Yesterday we got creative (and a little messy!) with Boomerang Painting!

I showed the students some symbols typically used by aboriginals along with their meanings and also some examples for them to copy,

but they were all happy to create their own designs!

After a relaxing hour of painting we put them to the test, with them returning most of time, until we lost 1 on the roof and 2 in a tree!

Boomerang Painting! November 9

This morning we did some Boomerang Painting and learnt a little about Aboriginal Australia culture and art.

The students enjoyed the chance to get creative, using the examples of traditional Aboriginal art including the symbols used for goanna and kangaroo tracks and the method of dot painting.

They also took advantage of the opportunity to practice speaking English during the activity, talking about boomerangs, the innate artistic ability that every person has, languages from around the world and the different dialects and accents in different locations. It was a relaxing activity and a perfect way to chill out on the morning after Student Night at Cheeky Monkeys!

Boomerang Painting! October 26

This afternoon we learnt a bit about Aboriginal Australian culture at the Boomerang Painting activity.

The students channeled their artistic sides and created some great boomerangs, painting Australian animals and using traditional Aboriginal symbols and dot-painting styles.

Every boomerang was as beautiful and unique as the person who painted it. 🙂
