HOW TO MAKE A TURTLE DOT PAINTING
DOT PAINTING IS GOOD FOR YOU!
Painting with Q-tips and toothpicks is great for kids’ fine motor skills. Painting activities improve concentration and attention span. You will also notice hand-eye coordination improves as fine motor skills improve, and as children grow in their fine-motor skills, their self-esteem grows too. See? I told you it was good for you! But the best part is that it’s fun!
ABORIGINAL DOT PAINTINGS
One of the most recognized forms of Australian art, Aboriginal dot paintings are highly valued worldwide as being a unique and important part of Australian Indigenous culture. Because Aboriginal culture does not have a written language, drawings are significant as they are used to tell stories and pass on deep knowledge and history through the generations.
