3rd graders graders are studying the life and art of the Australian Aboriginees. We looked at the country of Australia, the historical Aboriginee lifestyle, and the many styles and designs in typical Aboriginal paintings. We noticed how they often used many dots and spirals in their work. We then combined this lesson with our figure drawing lesson to create these Aboriginal dancers on the Aboriginal style background. We looked at the proportions of the human body and had students pose as models in various styles to help draw the many dancing positions.
