The Mysteries of Ancient Egypt

As Einstein said " Creativity is Intelligence having fun" , and the class had a lot of fun with our Egyptian lesson. You may have noticed that your child really loved writing their name in Hieroglyphics. We continued to look at ancient symbols and languages that are closely related to art.

We discussed the building and design of pyramids and looked at the interiors , which related to the frescoes and cave paintings and Petroglyphs of the other Ancient Cultures we visited.

 Week One: Cave Paintings

It has been an eventful week in our Art Literacy class. We have been all around the world.  I would like to thank all of my wonderful students for their great efforts. We began with the story of the discovery of the discovery of cave paintings in Lascaux,  France  and also looked at images from  Spain , where the oldest known cave paintings have been found,  in the cave called El Castillo. The prehistoric dots and crimson hand stencils are now the world's oldest known cave art that dates more than 40,800 years old.
