Interactive art session for all ages with a focus on primary-school students, young children and their parents.
This art class is a unique insight into traditional Aboriginal art and the use of traditional paints. Using ochre, students, children and families are asked to complete an art piece based on traditional symbols. Children and parents crush the ochre and blend this powder with water forming a paste. The ochre paint is then used to create their final art piece. Participants are encouraged to develop their own story using these symbols painting a picture based on their personal experiences.
This process develops motor and practical skills in young children. It gives an insight into traditional art and a greater understanding for the use of ochre in Aboriginal culture.
Ochre Play has previously been held at:
