Discover Australian wildlife and Aboriginal dot paintings. Combine three fun art techniques together to make colorful animal images.
Have students fold two or three pieces of white paper in half. Open. Cover the craft area with recycled newspaper. On one paper at a time, students paint on one side of the fold with Crayola Fingerpaints. Choose at least two colors to make each background.
While the paint is still wet, fold the papers. Rub gently on the unpainted side to transfer the paint. Open the paper and see the mirror (blotto) image. Notice how colors mix together. Add more paint and repeat the process to change the image or details.
When the symmetrical shape is complete, dip just one finger into fingerpaint. Apply dots of color to create patterns that surround or overlap the background. Lay flat to dry.
Choose an Australian animal, or imaginatively combine parts of several of these animals. From your dry paintings, cut out animal parts to make a unique creature.
Glue the Bumpy Blotto Beast on construction paper. Paint on more dots if necessary to complete your Beast.
