On Wednesday Mr. Gibson came to 6 Spindle to explain how aboriginal art is linked with storytelling and music. The children interpreted examples of aboriginal art and created a piece of music that reflected the story being told.
On Thursday Mr. Alderton followed on perfectly by creating some dot art inspired by aboriginal designs and paintings.
“I had a really fun time learning about how the type of music matches the stories and how the digeridoo acts as the drone which sounds really good with the rain-stick!”
“Dot art has different symbols that mean different things and unusual colours that have signify special things in aboriginal storytelling, this means you can tell a story with the paintings.”
6 Spindle want to thank the teachers from around the school who shared their expertise with the class, they have learnt so much about Australian culture this week!
