Celebrating NAIDOC week at TMAG

Len Maynard helps out one of the students

Two Aboriginal artists have spent NAIDOC week at TMAG, educating young Tasmanians about indigenous culture and art. 

The AccessArt team has hosted Tasmanian Aboriginal artists Judith-Rose Thomas and Len Maynard for NAIDOC week, a celebration of the history, culture and achievements of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples. 

For their part, Judith-Rose and Len were busy delivering workshops to primary school students each day.

The workshop included talks about Aboriginal history and culture as well as hands-on activities where the students used Aboriginal techniques in their art works.
