2024 ELC - Boomerang Painting
Children are taught how to use Aboriginal symbols to decorate a wooden boomerang.
About this Experience
This incursion is very hands-on, with every child engaging in the activity. It is a fun-filled introduction to Aboriginal symbols and how to tell stories with them. The Experience: In the absence of written languages, Aboriginal people used paintings to convey knowledge for thousands of years. Art styles vary greatly across Australia. In this incursion, children get introduced to a number of Aboriginal symbols and the art of storytelling through symbols. Children will then paint a wooden boomerang to take home at the end of the day. We supply: Wooden boomerangs, paint, brushes, symbol stamps, display materials illustrating Aboriginal symbols and materials for the demonstration on how to make traditional paint. We need: Tables and chairs set up for 4-6 children per table in a room with easy access to a sink to clean the resources afterwards. Fee: $605 incl. GST per 30min session $110 travel fee applies to all metro locations 25kms or more from Warrandyte
