2nd Grade Cave Drawings

This week, the second grade students turned the art room into a cave.  We flipped all of the desks on their sides and turned all of the lights off except for one spotlight.  We read a book called “Ghost Hands” written by T.A. Barron and illustrated by William Low, and looked at images of actual cave paintings from thousands of years ago.  Then, each student received a piece of paper that had been crumpled to resemble the rough texture of a cave wall.  They drew images using chalk pastels of hands, buffalo, bears, pumas, and other designs inspired by the art work we discussed.
