Last Friday members of the Halifax Art Society learned about Aboriginal Dot Painting from Lynda Thomas. This was new to most of us. It is only known in literature for a few decades, as the knowledge was passed on orally, in body painting or in displays on sand etc.
We enjoyed applying dots of acrylic paint on black paper, being intrigued by the possibilities of printing with the end of pencils, screws etc. until the paint faded more and more.
On the 14th February there will be a ‘Quick Draw Workshop’ with watercolours and water based black pens.
