The Carrolup School emerged in Western Australia as a distinctive landscape tradition of painting created by school aged Aboriginal children in the 1940s.
Its elements of romantic depiction of the bush and bush life may well reflect the needs of the child artists who were removed from their Aboriginal families under government policy. The tradition became a shared style of painting as the young artists matured and painting techniques spread through family groups, creating a regional style in the wheat belt and south west towns of Western Australia.Share
