Dreamer 53: The Art Education Experience will be available for viewing until March 15, 2014 at the Dreamer Concepts gallery located at 324 East Main Street in downtown Norman.
Wilson 4th and 5th grade students produced vividly colored designs based on the paintings of the Australian Aboriginal people. The program aims to increase the amount of visual arts education received by Wilson students and enhance their sense of belonging within the community.
Art educator Kara Gilbertson Diaz visited the Wilson Elementary students’ classrooms and guided them through the concept of “dreamtime stories,” or stories explaining nature in Aboriginal culture. The students then learned how to create rhythm by adding patterns and visual interest through application of color theory. The children’s paintings focus on Australian animals. As a capstone celebration, students chose Aboriginal symbols to be painted upon their faces by local volunteers. Their portraits were taken by local photographer and Wilson parent, Sam Scott, and will be displayed alongside their work in the Dreamer gallery.
