Aboriginal Designs

We went as Down Under as an Okie can get for this lesson! My mom (funny enough her name is Sheila)had traveled to Australia when I was in high school and as always brought back treasures from afar.

We played around with a rainstick that has amazing artwork on it, looked at (but didn't test out much to the boys dismay) a boomerang and tried out a huge didgeridoo! We also listened to a YouTube recording of a native playing it but alas, we could not mimick the deep, rhythmical sound... 


After sketching out initial designs we put our Q-tips to work on our canvases.



Here is what they came up with :)






 


Now to end the day with a bloomin' onion from Outback Steakhouse!
