The Theme of Mother & Child in Art History

The theme of a mother and child is one of the most prevalent subjects throughout art history ,spanning all time periods and cultures. We looked at examples over the centuries including works by contemporary artists . It was a process that took several weeks and a lot of patience. We hope you enjoy your child's lovingly created version and have a very Happy Mother's Day.

 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.
