Aboriginal Art Workshops – Perth

Ever
wanted the REAL Australian experience? The ones WITHOUT suffocating tour buses
and structured schedules? Meet REAL people, learn the REAL Aboriginal stories
in the way traditional Aboriginal culture has been passed on for generations?
Survival, lessons, hunting, tribal law, bush tucker, bush medicine,
relationships – EVERYTHING in traditional Aboriginal culture is passed on by
The Elders of each community through stories and art.
MainTraining
are offering a unique learning and cultural immersion experience in the form of
Aboriginal Art Classes.
You
will learn how to paint an Aboriginal style painting or boomerang decoration
which you will take home with you at the end of the day to remember your
magical experience forever! All paints and canvasses are provided.
Running
throughout the year, you can come to just one, or attend them all – it’s up to
you!
The Trainer:
Uncle
Doug Ryder is an Aboriginal Elder of ‘Nunda’ descent and he says this about his
art:
“The
traditional colours are red, brown, grey, white, yellow, black, ochre’s and
charcoal. 
I
have added greens and blues which are colours my people didn’t have.  The
stories in the art are based on ‘Dream Time’ and also the history of my people
and their ancestors. This explains why my paintings are contemporary as well as
traditional.”  
With
many traditional stories, culture and methods at risk of being lost to history,
this is an extremely rare and magical opportunity to learn first-hand.
Places
on these workshops are strictly limited so it is advised to book early.
