I am the art teacher for our Creation to the Greeks Co-op, and the plan this year is to start at the beginning with art as well.
I am pulling ideas off the internet and Harmony Fine Arts Ancient Art plans.
We started with a prehistoric cave art project.
1. Books on cave paintings
2. Brown grocery sack
3. Charcoal pencil
4. Chalk pastels
We reviewed the cave are books and learned a lot.
- What does prehistoric mean?
- What the art symbolized and the beliefs behind it
- What was drawn and where it was drawn
- How the colors were made and tools used to paint
I made up some notebooking pages for them complete as they went through the study.
Then they got to work creating their own cave art on the brown grocery sack using a charcoal pencil.
The drawings were then wadded up into balls to add the look of a cave wall.
Once they unraveled them, they colored them with pastel chalks.
They all seemed to enjoy this project too :0)
