Bicton Primary School Stage Backdrop

‘The Kissing Trees’

Stage backdrop painted for Bicton Primary School’s whole-school production for their Aboriginal Culture and Local Histories Awareness Program. The performance was the culmination of two years of focused learning about the culture and histories of the Wadjuk Noongar people from the Bicton/ Point Walter (Jundulup) area.

The artwork features the Point Walter Spit, the Swan River (Derbal Yerrigan), the Kissing Trees, a black swan, and plants that can be found along Blackwall Reach.

Year 2,3,5 & 6 students painted the backdrop over two days of workshops.
