Jimmy Pike Visual Art Program

The new Primary School Visual Arts Program explores the work of Aboriginal artist Jimmy Pike. Jimmy's love of vivid colour and use of textas influenced the bright colour palettes of artists across many Aboriginal communities. Children are excited by Jimmy's art and we are excited to share this set of lesson plans that are approved by Jimmy's family through the Jimmy Pike Trust.

The lesson plans are available as a free download at: Jimmy Pike Visual Art Program
