Aboriginal Dot Paintings, 3rd Grade

Students have recently been learning about traditions from many different cultures, so I thought it would be fun to do an Aboriginal art lesson. The Aborigines are the Natives of Australia and are known for their dot paintings. I showed the students many examples of Aboriginal dot paintings (there are a lot of examples of these on google images).
We then created our own dot paintings. On a piece of construction paper, students drew simple designs. Then using Q-tips, students used tempera paint to add color. Students could only use dots!! We then drew animals on black construction paper and glued them on top of our designs.
This is a very simple project, but I like the outcome.
