Wearable Art

Seth Sharp and Issabella Bonadio



  This year Wulguru State School has been lucky enough to work with Miss Christina, from ‘The Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Art Project: People, Culture & Country’. 
Our task was to create a Wearable Art Costume that represented the Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander cultures.  
  We have had visits from Martina Ah Sam, an indigenous artist who showed us how to do print making.
Cassie Harris showed us all about makeup and Uncle Billy Thaiday taught us how to weave with coconut palm fronds.
Aunty Bev and Mrs Kelly, also came along and helped us with our designs.
  The students drew what their design might look like and combined those ideas, using them for inspiration to create our wearable art costumes. The students had fun learning about their culture and also how to work as a team. 
  On Wednesday, we joined the other schools who participated in the project, to show off our designs to our families and the other schools. All the creations will be featured in a book and will be available next year.
