Dot Paintings

6th and 7th graders worked in the style of  Aboriginal Dot Painting to create these unique and colorful paintings. Aboriginal Dot Art originated in the desert of the Australian Outback, native Aborigines used natural substances like ochre, sand, blood, coal and plant material as ‘paint’. These raw materials were sometimes ground into a thick pasty paint or mixed with sand to color sand used in sand paintings. Our middle school students used tempera paint and q-tips to mimic the dotted style.
