Elementary students create aboriginal art



“They can be observed explaining who the Australian Aboriginal people are, what the process of art making is like and using the vocabulary of art to express their excitement about what they have made.”

As a capstone celebration, students chose Aboriginal symbols to be painted upon their faces by local volunteers. Their portraits were taken by local photographer and Wilson parent, Sam Scott, and will be displayed alongside their works in the Dreamer gallery.

“I liked doing a different kind of art that I had never done before. And I liked learning about the symbols in the art and how they could be used to tell a story,” said Owen Scott, Wilson Elementary fourth-grader.

The exhibit will be available for viewing during regular gallery hours or by appointment through March 7.
