Class 2 Cave paintings

11th June 2021
To begin their topic ‘Long, Long Ago’, Class 2 travelled back in time for their art lesson. They learned about cave painting in the stone age, reading Julia Donaldson’s ‘Cave Baby’ and ‘Stone Age Boy’ by Satoshi Kitamura, looking closely at the pictures. Then they bravely ventured into their very own cave and experimented with charcoal, using different pressures and exploring different shapes. They carefully used their fingers to smudge the lines and talked about the materials that people might have used to make marks long, long ago in the stone age.
