Students in class 5-235, 5-237 and 5-239 learned about the Stone Age era and Lascaux cave paintings. We started off using various wooden tools to carve out images that were in caves on hardened clay. We learned about the importance of cave paintings through the Neolithic stage and how they created the artwork. As a class we observed the earthy colors that were used and what kind stories were portrayed in the caves. Students worked as a team through group work showing their narration of people communicating through story telling. Students used inspiration through understanding the culture and history of cave paintings in their own work displaying animals, people, tools and evidence. At the end of the class students critiqued each others work by hypothesizing their stories through visual arts and history.
