Join us for our ‘Buddy Loves Dot Art’ Cultural Workshops – Conducted by local Aboriginal Artist, Buddy King, our Cultural Workshops are the perfect way for your little one to enjoy a day of creative arts while increasing their knowledge about Aboriginal culture. This workshop has been designed to allow children to participate in a fun and cultural experience.
About Buddy King:
Buddy is a proud Kamilaroi Yorta Yorta man now living on Darkinjung land. Buddy is a father, an artist, works in Child Protection and loves expressing his love of culture and land through art.
Buddy Loves Dot Art was born because of this passion. He loves to share culture through art, and wants to break the barriers between Aboriginal and non Aboriginal people using his artworks.
Drawing inspiration from nature is a big feature in his artworks, and the sunrise over Wamberal Beach was used as inspiration for Buddy to feature in a recent campaign with a national paint brand.
Buddy loves sharing his culture and story through small group workshops and hopes to continue to educate non Aboriginal people through art and colour.
Creative Kids Vouchers can be used to cover the cost of the workshop.
Activities throughout the day include – Cooking Damper, gathering items to use for artworks, creating paints out of natural products and painting.
Now more than ever we are seeing an increased interest in Aboriginal culture and creative outlets for children.
