We had a child that was disappointed about missing an Australian Aboriginal Art inspired art lesson at school, so we did our own. Wow, how much fun and effective this art technique is
We each used a different way to approach the design to use. We had one using the shape of something – a seahorse, another doing a wavy line and circles, and the third starting with a blob shape. I suggest the blob shape as a great design to use when first having a go with this technique.
So start with a basic design on paper – keep it really simple. Then using cotton buds dipped in paint – start making dots to fill in your shapes and create some very cool patterns.
