The Aborigine People of Australia keep their folk lore alive through their beautiful, intricate paintings. The connection to the natural world and the environment are of utmost importance for the survival of the culture, and different animals and symbols are represented in the art work. Students are introduced to some of the stories and art work, and then create their own! The paintings are built up from sketches, and finalized with many dots and patterns. Students can create their own folk lore stories based on the animals and symbols they choose to incorporate in their paintings.
