Nikki Carabetta (Baugh) is an urban Aboriginal artist who has worked extensively with schools over the past 10 years. She is a versatile artist and has tutored in everything from  face painting and paper mache puppets and from costume-making to Aboriginal art.

Nikki has worked with local primary students making mosaics and glass painting and has undertaken a series of Aboriginal art workshops at several local schools, including a 100 years celebration project at Cabra Dominican College.

Nikki has an Advanced Diploma in visual and applied arts, from TAFE SA and has been painting in her own style (Aboriginal art) her whole life.

I do mostly dot paintings but can do Raak and X-Ray styles as well. My role at the Living Kaurna Cultural Centre is as an educator, I teach culture through art workshops.

In her practise Nikki has worked with schools and community groups using a range of visual arts techniques and mediums resulting in various outcomes:  murals; mosaics;  painting on glass; and craft workshops - beading, mosaics, collages, toll art, lino print, paper mache, silk-screen printing, recycled art including making animals from aluminium cans, wire art and plastics.

Nikki's art workshops utilise a broad range of mediums including water colours, pastels, paints and charcoal and she especially enjoys teaching aspects of Aboriginal art.
