Explore the mysteries of caves as you create original crayon resist cave scenes.
A cave is an underground space with little or no light and constant moisture. Ask students what other environmental characteristics they can 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.
Students design their own cave art. Ask them to think about what they 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. Draw clues about cave life, such as the soft bed on which a bear would sleep during hibernation.
Cover the work area with recycled newspaper. Paint the cave art with Crayola Washable Paint. Blend colors to look like damp, rocky surfaces inside caves. Air-Dry. The crayon cave art will pop off the walls!
