Create your own dreamtime symbols in the style of modern Aboriginal culture.
Aboriginal art is very important in native Australian culture. Everyone is considered an artist! Aboriginal religious practices are very much linked to nature. People concentrate hard on their surroundings (kind of like meditation) and ideas come to them. This experience is very much like dreaming when we sleep. All Aboriginal art is based on how different parts of nature relate to each other.
Learn more about Australia, its native peoples, and their art. Locate the country on a world map. Find pictures of animals that are common on that continent, such as kangaroos, lizards, and birds. Sketch simple outlines of them with Crayola® Erasable Colored Pencils. Erase until you are satisfied with at least one.
Draw your favorite Australian animal on Crayola Color Explosion Paper with Color Explosion Markers. Very bright colors are common in Aboriginal art, so it is easy to make your work look as authentic as possible.
Aboriginal art is decorated with meaningful designs (symbols). For example, a squiggly line could be a snake, concentric circles usually represent a camp/village, straight lines mean a road/traveling, and dots (which are very popular in modern Aboriginal art) can represent animal tracks. Add designs that relate to your animal. Invent symbols if you like. Fill your picture with striking patterns and designs.
