Cave art




Who were the first artists?  What did they draw?  What materials did they use?  What is this color scheme called?  These are just some of the many questions we explore as the young Kindergarten (and one First grade) classes disscuss the art found in caves.  After a brief PowerPoint, I ask them to put on their saftey hat as we delve into the Lascaux website.  It's amazing!  So are their creations!  If time allows, a great book to read is called The cave painter of Lascaux by Roberta Angeletti.
