Description

In this two- and half-hour program, students will have the opportunity to have free unstructured play in the Climb, Crawl, Slide sculpture, explore the lower level installations, and learn the creative process through creative instruction. Aboriginal Dot Art allows participants to learn social study skills by creating visual materials as form of expression through dot art and iconic symbols. Participants will learn about animals that live in Australia (kangaroo, lizard, koala, platypus etc) and learn how Aborigines used dots and symbols to create original artwork and stories.

Students Will

  • will evaluate their art in process and make any needed changes to improve their art to tell their story
