Our Year 5 – Pwerle

Hello! Welcome to our class page and and a taster of what we are learning about this term. Our teacher is Mrs Tracey.

Here are some details about our class artist Minnie Pwerle (c1915-2006).

Born near Alice Springs, Minnie was an Aborigine artist who did not begin painting until 2000 when she was aged about 80. When asked why she had not begun earlier, she said that "no-one had asked her". She produced works of contemporary Indigenous art which is much sought after and displayed in galleries all over Australia.

Please take a look, in more detail, at this term's curriculum.
