Shaughnessy Park Cave Painting

The Grade 8 students at Shaughnessy Park School have been learning about Early Humans in Social Studies class. Early humans painted images of animals in caves as a form of communication; they had no written language. For paints, early humans used materials found in nature, like crushed berries, charcoal and soot. Early humans created their own paintbrushes out of horsehair of which they fastened to sticks or bones.

Students created their own 'cave art' by using earthly colours and images of animals. Students placed their handprint on their art piece as a kind of 'signature'. Students enjoyed integrating Social Studies and Art!
