Stone Age Cave Paintings

In Art, we have been looking at cave paintings and where they have been discovered around the world: from Argentina and Brazil to France and even India! Homo sapiens, during the Stone Age, used mud, moss, charcoal and sometimes blood to mark the walls of caves. We had fun recreating a scene from the book, The Stone Age Boy, using mud, leaves and ash from our fire (we decided that using blood wasn’t a good idea)! We had to use our fingers or twigs instead of paint brushes. We’re all really proud of how well they turned out!
