Biography

Marribank Aboriginal Art Centre
 
Marribank Aboriginal Art Centre at Carrolup is 32 km from
Katanning SE of Perth in Western Australia. During the 1940's Carrolup was changed to Marribank Farm School and at this Aboriginal settlement, children were encouraged to paint. Government funding has provided training programs in ceramics, textiles, bark and oil painting.
