The Timeline of Art History – The Birth of Art

In Upper Elementary, students explore their own creativity while studying the path our ancestors have taken to create art.  This year, we start at the beginning.  The First Drawing tells the story of what might have happened to inspire the very first artist to create art on the wall of a cave over 30,000 years ago.  During the Paleolithic era, we have evidence that art was created in caves by the pictographs that remain.  These pictographs are the inspiration for the cave art murals that small groups of artist are working on this month.  Check out their process:IMG_2370 IMG_2372 IMG_2378 IMG_2381 IMG_2382
