Seven and eight year olds.
Still working on our cultural theme, the children were given a piece of driftwood onto which they were to paint in an aboriginal design. They looked at examples of didjeridus, ceremonial poles, water spirit poles and funeral poles. They identified the strong symbols and designs. They practiced their ideas with the Aboriginal poles in mind. They used acrylic paint to paint their poles. Cotton buds came in handy when putting on dots.
