Indigenous Inspired Paintings

The children have been exploring and enjoying indigenous picture books.

After placing some of these books on a table the children chose the pictures they wanted to use the colours and the drawing styles to paint.

The children explored the books and when they had decided what picture they would like to paint they placed the page open in front of them and expressed their creativity with motivation of the colours and images from the books
