Cave Paintings: Art Project & Virtual Field Trip

cave-paintings

My children had a great time making cave paintings this week. We went on a virtual field trip to some caves in France. It felt like we were inside the caves with flashlights. Here is the link for the French caves we explored:

The children paid attention to what kinds of objects were painted on cave walls. Lots of cows and horses were pictured, along with camels and bison and people. On the back of a brown grocery bag (cut open), we sketched some figures in pencil. Then we used metallic paint left over from our outer space mural earlier this year. The pictures came out great!
