In this course we will have a look at Aboriginal artwork from its inception as cave paintings possibly up to 50,000 years old , to today’s million dollar canvasses which have wowed the international art market in recent years. We will look at the subject matter which inspired the Aboriginal peoples to paint , for example the animals they hunted in ancient days, or ”maps” showing the activities of the ancestors in the mythical Dreamtime. We will look at the materials used and the technical language, in the form of symbols , used. We will then use this information to produce our own artwork , firstly by making versions of existing works , but then possibly by producing individual work using some aspect of Aboriginal artwork as inspiration.
