Look deep into an Ancient culture, and decode a visual language of simple dots and lines! Use these symbols to create a meaningful unique design.
Traditional Aboriginal artwork is most known for its distinctive use of dots and lines. Ask students to find examples of Aboriginal artwork and research the symbolism of the dots and lines in each piece. What can they tell about their daily lives from these simple depictions?
Students use the Aboriginal symbols found to create their own original work of art! On black construction paper, draw an Aboriginal design with Crayola Slick Stix™. Slick Stix contain pigments that may stain clothing, fabrics and other household surfaces. Have students wear a smock to protect their clothing and cover their work surface with recycled newspaper. Experiment with the Slick Stix to make interesting lines, swirls, and dots of various weights and textures!
Encourage students to enhance their drawings with a 3D effect! Flatten a small amount of Crayola Model Magic® on a hard surface such as a table. Firmly press a Crayola Marker cap into the flattened modeling compound. Remove the Model Magic from the cap and shape it into a small ball. Model Magic that is fresh from the pack will stick to itself. Dried pieces can be glued together. Attached dots to the drawing with Crayola No-Run School Glue.
