"Womin-dji-ka"

The Welcome Project

 

What is "The Welcome Project"?

The aim of the project is to engage the whole Big Hill Primary School community, in particular the Indigenous students and their families. Throughout the project students will immerse themselves in rich Aboriginal culture, explore traditional art concepts, creating a collective art piece which will be titled “Womin-dji-ka”.

“Womin-dji-ka”. This simple yet heart-warming word, native to the Dja Dja Wurrung people meaning “Welcome” will be the focus of a creative mural which will greet the Big Hill community as they enter the school grounds.

Daikota has worked locally with a local Primary School as well as with local communities groups, designing and creating community inspired artwork.

Troy Firebrace

Troy’s enthusiasm towards his art is inspiring and this shows in his unique and creative designs. His motivation is to bring modernism into Aboriginal Art and to share his skills with a variety of different people.

Day 4. Exploring Fonts

Today students learnt about different fronts and the impact they have. With assistance from Troy and Daikota the students explored different styles of writing including graffiti writing, 3D writing and bubble writing. The students also started to explore with letter sizing. All the students were encouraged to be creative and think about the different colours, pattern and pictures they would like to use to decorate their writing. Here are some responses from students during today lesson:

Mia – I have enjoyed drawing as part of today’s lesson.

Bella – I enjoyed being creative.

Mia A – I enjoyed learning to write 3D.
