This term, we will begin by embracing the artists within us to create an aboriginal-inspired piece of art work. To do this, we will explore pieces of art from a range of aboriginal artists and identify key patterns, colours and symbols within their pieces. We will explore some of the symbology used and practice using this in our own sketchbooks. Then, we will identify primary colours and how to mix them to create secondary colours to use in our work. Before bringing all of these skills together, we will experiment with different tools to create the patterns used in aboriginal art. When we have created our masterpieces, we will look more at where aboriginal art comes from and make comparisons between the UK and Australia.
