Explore the mysteries of caves as you create original crayon resist cave scenes.
What is a cave? It is an underground space with little or no light and constant moisture. What other environmental characteristics can you find about caves? What traits would be important or unnecessary for animals that live in caves? How about eyesight or bright skin color? What do caves provide for animals or people? What else besides safety, shelter, protection from weather, and privacy?
The first record of art is found in a cave in Lascaux, France, in the Verzere Valley. This art was drawn 35,000 years ago. Early cave art, mostly animal drawings, is also found in Australia, Africa, and Spain.
To design your own cave art, think first about what you might find inside. Which animals or people live there? What are the colors, textures, and shapes found in your cave? Using Crayola® Construction Paper™ Crayons on a large sheet of paper, make your cave come alive with seen and unseen life. Think about animals, water, rock walls, or cave-dwelling people. You might draw clues about cave life, such as the soft bed on which a bear would sleep during hibernation.
Cover your work area with newspaper. Paint your cave art with Crayola Washable Paint and Paint Brushes. Blend colors to look like damp, rocky surfaces inside caves. Dry. Your crayon cave art will pop off the walls!
