How to Recreate a Cave Painting
In 1940 three French boys and their dog 'Robot" found a giant subterranean cave that was adorned with over six hundred beautiful cave paintings. These paintings featured large animals that once inhabited the region. In this lesson we recreate a few of these creatures onto a cave-textured canvas, using earth tone pigments as our medium. The project is a lot of fun, a great talking piece, and ideal to create with children.
