Australian Aboriginal Dot Painting
Watch Edith’s video and try making your own painting using the dot technique as inspiration.
You can also learn more about the history of dot painting and explore the work of some contemporary Australian Aboriginal artists. Here are a few good places to start:
Show us! Send your photos to firstname.lastname@example.org, and share them on social media using #NinaArtChallenge. We’ll share your artwork with the world in our digital art gallery!
Some tips for photographing your work:
– Make sure your artwork is well lit. Natural light (from a window or outside) works best!
– Try your best to take the photo straight-on to avoid weird angles. Hanging your art on a wall to take the photo works great, or you can lay your piece flat and shoot from above (but watch out for shadows!)
The Nina has suspended our programs until the COVID-19 situation has stabilized, but we’re challenging all of our artists to keep making art at home with the #NinaArtChallenge!
Because we know our artists aren’t the only people stuck at home unexpectedly right now, we’d like to invite all of our friends and followers to participate in these art challenges as well. You can sign up now to receive the #NinaArtChallenge prompts by email and create along with us.
