Third Grade Australian X-Ray and Dot Art

Third Grade learning about Australia in our Art room, and its Aboriginal Art. We handled a real didgeridoo, and have sample some actual didgeridoo recorded music. In accordance with our standards we looked at, and respectfully discussed, the art from this wonderful culture. We are  now learning to draw specific animals found in Australia. Then, Mrs. Jackson-style, we are taking it up a notch and sparking it with some color. The x-ray free-form shapes are colored in with metallic pencils. then
 embellished with patterns of shape and line. The dots  around the animal are made with the eraser end of a new pencil, dipped into metallic tempera paint. We are concentrating on purposeful design. No random marks on these works of art!
