Insights into your experience

Our dot painting workshops have been an international success and now we’d like to offer this exclusive experience as an online option. 

This allows groups such as for schools, businesses and friends to connect with Aboriginal culture and the arts live from Uluru.
We are offering a 1 hour live online Zoom call where participants will experience a dot painting workshop with Anangu artists who will share ancient stories and the traditional symbols used to create their magnificent art.  Using paints, pencils, crayons, paper or canvas, participants will create their very own piece of art. A copy of the traditional symbol sheet will be sent by email to all participants.
Participants will also receive a Q&A of questions which will be collected prior to the event.  At the end there will be an opportunity to purchase the artwork created by the Anangu artist on the day.

This is a great opportunity to engage with Aboriginal art and culture. It is much more than simply dot painting as this workshop allows you to connect live and discover the ancient stories behind the art whilst simultaneously creating your own piece using the ancient symbols.
