Aboriginal Dot Art

Watch the following video.

Fish Dot Art Now follow the link below for suggestions on how to create your very own piece of Aboriginal Dot Art.  If you don’t have paint, markers work just as well. Remember to be patient and start small. For a more realistic effect, consider creating your art on a wrinkled up brown paper bag.

Directions:

  1. Take out your paint, crayons, or markers. Now take out a blank sheet of construction paper, copy paper, or a wrinkled brown paper bag.

  2. Pretend that you are living thousands of years ago and need to create a work of art for your ancestors.

  3. Think of a short story or event that you would like to tell with your symbols. On the back of your paper, write down that short story or event.

  4. Now, turn your paper over. Choose one, two or even three of the above Aboriginal symbols to create a storyline.

  5. Using the symbols you have chosen, create patterns to tell your story.
Don’t forget to place this completed activity/product into the pocket of your white Journey into Reading envelope.
