Aboriginal MasksIMG-2158

Dot paintings are now internationally recognized as unique and integral to Australian Aboriginal Art. The simple dot style as well as cross hatching maybe beautifully aesthetic to the eye but has a far more hidden meaning and deeper purpose; to disguise the sacred meanings behind the stories in the paintings.

Students are making their own designs to decorate Aboriginal Style Masks.For more information click on the following link.

Totem Poles


Students will finish creating their Totem Pole Projects. They have chosen a spirit animal for each family member. Students have designed their projects using examples from Native America Art.
The origins of most Native American decorative designs cannot be traced accurately today; most of them are lost in antiquity. Many obviously came from natural forms, while others are simple developments of geometric or lineal motifs.
