Kindergarten: Cave Paintings

For our kindergarten and pre-k classes, we are making "cave paintings". This is an environmentally and budget friendly project that any teacher can appreciate!
 Start with brown paper bags! Ours are cut down to 16"x8". 
After a brief explanation of what cave paintings are and the history of ancient art, the students can sketch out animal and human forms on their bags with oil pastels.



After that, they used tempura paints as a resist over the pastels.

To display the pieces, we string them together and run them down the hallway!
here are some student examples:
