Product Description

Buy it once and use it forever.

The Goori (Aboriginal) Advent Calendar for teachers, is based on a painting by Yugambeh-Bundjalung artist and educator Lisa M. Buxton.

In 2008, Lisa created an acrylic painting on canvas, of an advent calendar (counting down from the 1st of December through to the 25th of December) in her signature Goori* style. With Lisa’s permission, we have converted her original Aboriginal Christmas painting to a digital format, so that you can print it out for your classroom or home on quality printed paper. We have also created a colourable version that students can colour in themselves.

This publication contains

  • Colourable Goori Advent Calendar
