Our first art project of the year was fun and easy! This year, I decided to rewind the clock and go back to the very beginning of time--cave art! We'll be studying different periods of art history throughout the year. I thought, what better place to start than with the earliest art known to us? After looking at some inspirational samples from the Cave of Lascaux and the Gobustan Petroglyphs, we got to make our own messy but fun renditions of cave art. Using just paper bags and chalk pastels, we created these unique scenes. Their favorite parts? Crumpling the paper (to simulate the cave walls) and getting to draw "stick figures." (The only time this year! I said.) Please enjoy projects from the 5th-8th graders, in no particular order.
