Dot Painting Experience

YOUR EXPERIENCE PROVIDER

Maruku Arts

Join our fun and organic dot painting workshop that runs twice daily in the township of Yulara, Uluru in the Northern Territory. You will be taught by a local Anangu artist and an assisting interpreter. You’ll learn about traditional art, symbols, tools, our language and more. Get inspired by the ancient ways of the desert and create your very own work of art to treasure.

Insights into your experience

For thousands of years, Anangu have passed down their knowledge generation to generation, to keep the land, their culture and their people strong.

Through our workshops our artists would like to share a part of their culture with you, so you can learn something, create something and show your family.

The workshop does not enable you to do dot painting on a professional level, but is an experience to understand Aboriginal paintings and culture better.

Our dot painting workshop runs for an hour and a half guided by a local Anangu artist and interpreter. You will learn about ancient symbols used in Anangu art and teachings.

You will be taught some introductory Pitjantjatjara words, the local language spoken by Anangu.

Through an introduction to Anangu tools, you will get a sense of traditional and contemporary life.

You will get to create, keep and share your own story, applying your new knowledge.
