Cave paintings

In this very practical lesson, we will be taking a look at some photographs of the oldest paintings known to mankind. We will then move on to replicating a cave painting ourselves by working with a parent or carer to create natural paints from items we can find in our kitchen. This lesson includes some physical activity and equipment beyond pen, paper or pencil. Please make sure your child is adequately supervised.
