This afternoon our Lexis Noosa students are trying to paint traditional boomerangs.
A boomerang is a thrown tool, typically constructed as a flat airfoil, that is designed to spin about an axis perpendicular to the direction of its flight. A returning boomerang is designed to return to the thrower. It is well known as a weapon used by Indigenous Australians for hunting.
Today our students took part in some boomerang painting. They were given a chart of Aboriginal symbols, beautiful coloured paint, and wooden boomerangs to create their own masterpiece so they can take home a little piece of traditional Australian culture.
Everyone painted something beautiful and unique. Check out some of the stunning work they made.
Don’t they look incredible? Take a look at Jessica and Leonie’s masterpieces.
