Dreamy Dots & Designs craft

Try this new twist on traditional Australian Aboriginal art and have fun with lots of dots!

  • 1.

    Traditional Australian Aboriginal art—like all art—uses designs and lines to represent ideas. Aboriginal art usually includes lots of dots. Many paintings show a very large bird or reptile. Try this technique, and maybe even an Australian theme with Crayola Color Explosion™ paper and color-reveal markers!

  • 2.

    Use the color-reveal marker to outline anything you like! Inside this area, make small shapes or lines to show detail in a stylized way.

  • 3.

    Fill in big background areas with long thin rectangles, lots of dots, and circles. Try making a repeated shape to frame the outside edge.

    You could even make several and fill your room with color!
