Raising (Cave) Boys

The boys have had some fun today learning about prehistoric cave painting. After reading a bit about prehistoric art from library books on the subject, and looking at pictures online of caves in Lascaux, they had a go at creating some of their own prehistoric style art.

They tore large pieces of brown wrapping paper up and scrumpled them to get a nice texture. We then popped out in the garden to gather sticks for painting with:

Next they set to painting bison and stick figures and so on. Here’s Waif getting stuck in:

And some detail from his finished piece:

And here’s Gman’s version:

And if you thought I wouldn’t be able to resist joining in as well, you’d be right. Here’s my bison:

Actually, painting with sticks was quite liberating – it certainly frees you from any perfectionist expectations!
