Antipodean Art…..

These are photos from the work done this term in Art with KS3 pupils. They have been learning about Aboriginal Art. The objective was to understand the origins and beliefs of Aboriginal art, and to produce a piece of work based on traditional designs.

Aboriginal art dates back to between 60,000 and 80,000 years ago. This is when Aboriginal people first settled in Australia. There was no written language in existence, so in order to convey their cultural stories through the generations, it was portrayed using symbols and icons in their artwork.

We think our students should be very proud of what they have created this term – we think it looks fantastic.
