Middle School Dot Painting

I am teaching art to middle school students this year at New Horizon Academy. Our first project was learning about Aboriginal Dot Painting and the students really enjoyed seeing the video’s of the Australian artists and their art. Here are their versions of dot painting.

You can access the Australian Dot Painting powerpoint lecture Aboriginal Dot Painting.

Our next project was Chinese Calligraphy. Will post pics soon.
