Aboriginal Art and Story Telling



The unique experience offered by Wirnda Barna Art Centre


The Wirnda Barna Art Centre (Wirnda Barna) offers a unique experience for visitors to create their own dot painting, guided by Aboriginal Artists. This hands-on experience allows visitors to learn about the traditional techniques and meanings behind Aboriginal Art while creating their own personalised piece to take home as a souvenir.

The Artists will provide a step-by-step guide of the painting process, allowing visitors to connect with the art and culture in a meaningful way. This experience is perfect for those who want to learn more about Aboriginal Art and Culture. In addition to creating their own dot painting, visitors can learn about the dreamtime story behind their painting. The dreamtime story is a traditional Aboriginal narrative that explains the creation of the world and the origins of different species. By learning about the dreamtime story behind their painting, visitors can gain a deeper understanding of the cultural significance and meaning behind Aboriginal Art. This knowledge can enhance the appreciation and enjoyment of the art, making the experience even more meaningful.

The dot painting created during the experience is not only a beautiful piece of art but also a tangible reminder of the cultural experience and connection made with the Aboriginal Artists. This personalised piece of art is a truly unique and special souvenir from a visit to Wirnda Barna.

Bookings for this experience are essential.

This experience takes approximately 2 hours and refreshments are included.
