New Doors at Shepherdson
There are some brand new doors on lots of classrooms around Shepherdson College and classes are beginning to create designs to decorate them. Here is the beautiful group effort from Ellemor 1.
The process involved designing the background, which we cut up and painted. Then, in an amazing feat of problem solving and co-operation, we put it back together like a giant jigsaw!!
We then painted and cut out two cockatoos. These represent Dhuwa and Yirritja, the moieties of the Yolngu and are very important symbols culturally and are on our school crest.
Djinangbuy even made a fine paintbrush using a stick and some hair to paint the outlines.
Here is the final design. We can’t wait to see lots of beautiful new paintings around our school.
