Have you ever wanted a handout for kids when studying Australia aboriginal Art that will explain the symbolism? Here is a simple handout for you to use.
Artist Albert Namatjira (1902–1959) and Ghost Gums
Indigenous Australian artist Albert Namatjira (1902–1959) is arguably Australia's best known Aboriginal painter. He is known for watercolours of desert landscapes rather than the symbolic style of traditional Aboriginal art. His paintings also depict Ghost Gums that were to be listed as heritage sites in Alice Springs, but these trees have now been burnt down.
