Students will practice fundamental elements of art- Line, Symmetry, Contrast, Balance, Color Tints & Shades...

Students will learn how to draw a face and facial features, developing an awareness of proportion and spacial symmetry.
Here are some great resources for Aboriginal Art for kids:
Aboriginal art is art made by indigenous Australian people. It includes work made in many different ways including painting on leaves, wood carving, rock carving, sculpting, ceremonial clothing and sand painting. Aboriginal art is closely linked to religious ceremonies or rituals.

Color for Aboriginal art was originally sourced from local materials, using ochre or iron clay pigments to produce red, yellow and white, and black from charcoal.

 Aboriginal Dot Paintings and their Origin. ... The defining criterion for a dot painting is the technique used - that it is produced by repeated imprints of a paint covered brush, dotting stick or other implement onto the surface of the painting and that in doing so, there are recognizable 'dot' marks on the canvas.

So many things link back to Aboriginal Art even this song by Midnight Oil - 1969
