5th grade Aboriginal Rainsticks
5th graders are finishing up their year by going back to Australian art! (We finally collected enough pringles cans to do the project). We looked at Australian dot art and considered how their paintings and rainsticks were used in their aboriginal culture. We then painted a dot painting in a similar style and color scheme, pushed nails through a pringles can, filled it with rice beans and such, then used art paste to mache it all together! We are making music in here!
