Trips to Mulan community are such a joy when we get to pick up absolute stunners like this work by senior artist Veronica Lulu.
Lulu has painted the story of Kiki - the star that travelled from the east and fell into the lake, creating all the plants and animals that the Walmajarri people continue to eat today.

Senior artists Helicopter Tjungurrayi and Lucy Loomoo finished great works today!
Both artists remain stalwarts at the art centre, they are here everyday and always have stories to tell of their traditional country.

Dulcie Nanala is all smiles as she paints her father’s country Karlyapilyirra, south of Balgo in the Great Sandy Desert. Dulcie tells of her country, it’s heritage and its life giving gifts.
Dulcie is also a proud and vocal member of the Warlayirti board.

Lleyton watches and learns from his Great Grandmother, Ningie Nanala, as she paints her country Yula, named after the tjurrnu (soak water) located south of Balgo in the Great Sandy Desert.

Intergenerational learning is essential for keeping culture and art strong. We’re so happy the young ones are coming to the art centre during the school holidays so they can learn to be future Warlayirti artists!

On Tuesday the young girls came to the art centre to paint with their grandmothers, and on Thursday the young boys learnt to carve spears by the senior men.
