World Wednesday: Australian Dot Painting

Details

Wednesday, June 14, 2017 -
1:00pm to 2:00pm
Storytime Room

This year's Summer Reading Program theme is "Building a Better World." One way we can do this it to encourage cultural literacy. On Wednesdays, join us for an activity in the Storytime Room that will help us learn and understand something new about different world cultures.

Today we will be focusing on the continent/country Australia as they celebrate the Queen's Birthday! Aboriginal dot paintings are highly valued worldwide as being a unique and integral part of Australian Indigenous culture. Using dots, this art form uses symbols to depict how the land was created, basing their subject matter mainly on patterns and animals. Check out this activity to make your own art and find out more about Australian culture.
