Maitland's Dwaarlindjirraap Art On Country
Learn To Paint Nyoongar Style.
Join Maitland in an art class on Country and learn the techniques of painting in traditional Nyoongar style.
Maitland's artwork showcases Aboriginal knowledge about Boodja (country) and gives respect to his Ancestors and the Dreamtime. He paints a depiction of Nyoongar landscapes in acrylic/watercolour on canvas, traditional paperbark, and pyrography on plywood, using natural materials including traditional ochre (used for ceremonial body paint) and bush gum resins. A distinctive feature of Nyoongar artwork is the use of light and colour in the brilliant portrayal of the rich sunsets – red, yellow, gold and black trees. This tour is suitable for beginners to professionals. All art materials are supplied and Maitland includes a delicious morning tea including Dampler, Wattleseed muffins and Quandong jam, washed down with a fresh billy tea.
