Sixth-grade students in Ms. Grady’s and Ms. Lindenbaum’s art classes learned about Aboriginal culture during a visit from native Australian artist Chris Pitkin. Chris played a didgeridoo for the students and explained the different aspects of the Australian culture, including the music and art of the Aboriginal people. The first natives of Australia, did not have a written language. They share their history through art by means of “dot paintings” made from the Outback’s red sand.
This program was funded by the Elwood Booster Club.
