3 Hello! My name is Cronotroglo and I'm 10 years old. I'm here to teach you about prehistoric art. I hope you like it! Hello! My name is Cronotrogla and I'm 10 years old, too. I have a question for you. DO YOU KNOW WHAT PREHISTORY IS?

4 What do you know about Prehistory? WHAT DO YOU KNOW ABOUT PREHISTORY?

5 Great! You know a lot about us! As you may know humans have always been artists. We are going to explain you different artistic manifestations of our times that you are going to learn with us, like: Cave Art or Rock Art Portable Art Weapons and tools Megalithic monuments Caves Petroglyphs Venus Sling stone Harpoons

6 CAVE ART We first lived in caves.These caves are full of cave art or rock art. We painted on natural rock surfaces with natural materials like mud, coal, pigments, fat and blood. Mud Coal Fat Blood Pigments

7 We used sticks, feathers and fingers like brushes. finger feather stick brushes We

8 Paintings were mostly of animals: horses, wild boars, bulls, deers…

9 We also painted human representations like war, hunting and everyday life (gathering food and ritual dances activities)

10 Would you like to visit any famous prehistoric caves? One of the most important ones is Lacaux, in France. You can do a virtual tour here. There are a lot of caves in Spain. The most known is Altamira. You can visit its museum here. You can also visit the Prehistoric Caves of Cantabria and do a virtual tour here.

11 Why do you think we painted animals on cave walls? Write true (T) or false (F) next to the following sentences. Because we loved arts and crafts we painted the spirit of animals we hunted and depended on for food we loved representing religious ceremonies we liked telling stories about the animals on the rocks they were beautiful we loved decorating the caves.

12 What do you think is this painting about? Is it about the war? Is it a battle scene? Is it a hunting scene? Does it represent everyday life? Are they gathering food? Are they dancing?

13 At this point you know a lot about our cave art. Why don’t you try to decorate a part of your school like a cave? In order to imitate us we propose you to draw lying down on the floor with the paper under the table. You can use: - Brown wrapping paper - Chalk pastels in earthy colors - You can choose some of these templates Click here to see an example.

14 LET'S SHARE YOUR WORK! LONG VERSION I made (my /the) (drawing) with (brown wrapping paper / chalk pastels). I made it (on my own / with help / with a classmate). First I chose a shape from the (template). Second I drew a (bull/deer /man) After that I coloured the (bull//deer/man) with a (chalk pastels). Finally I hanged it on the wall. SHORT VERSION I made (my /the) (drawing) with (brown wrapping paper /chalk pastels). I made it (on my own /with help /with a classmate) I drew a (bull/deer /man) I hanged it on the wall.

15 PETROGLYPHS Petroglyphs are another type of cave art. We made drawings engraving the rocks. OPTION 1 Materials: template, rocks, chalk pastels and punches (or opened paper clips). Steps to follow: 1st Draw a variety of animals and hunting scenes you want to copy onto the rock. 2nd Cover the rock faces with chalk pastels. 3rd Carve with a punch or an opened paper clip. OPTION 2 Materials: template, clay or salt dough and punches (or opened paper clips). Steps to follow: 1st Pinch the dough or the clay and squeeze it into a plane shape. 2nd Draw a variety of animals and hunting scenes you want to copy. 3rd Carve with a punch or an opened paper clip

16 LET'S SHARE YOUR WORK! LONG VERSION I made my/ the (petroglyph) with (clay /salt dough). I made it (on my own /with help /with a classmate). First I pinched and squeezed the clay into a plane shape. Second I drew a (bull/deer /man). After that, I carved the (bull/deer /man) with a (punch /paper clip). Finally, I let it dry overnight. SHORT VERSION I made my (petroglyph) with (clay). I made it (on my own /with help /with a classmate). I drew a (bull/deer /man).

17 PORTABLE ART Don’t think that we only painted on rocks and walls. We also made portable art, meaning art that can be carried. It consists of objects carved from stone, bone, or antler. Here you have some examples: - Venus figurines - Carved animal bone tools - Dimensional relief carvings

18 LET'S CREATE A VENUS! You can try to make your own Venus. You can use clay, salt dough or plasticine. Here you have some examples:

19 LET'S SHARE YOUR WORK! LONG VERSION I made my/the (Venus) with (clay /salt dough /plasticine). I made it (on my own /with help /with a classmate) First I shaped the (clay /salt dough /plasticine) into four (plane shapes /balls). Second I moulded the breast and pinched out rounded stubs to make the arms. After that I moulded and joined the legs and the head. Finally I let it dry overnight. SHORT VERSION I made my/the (Venus) with (clay /salt dough /plasticine). I made it (on my own /with help /with a classmate). I let it dry overnight.

20 MEGALITHISM We also built huge constructions. This art is known as megalithism. There are some examples in the Balearic Islands. Taula Talaiotic house Naveta Talaiot

21 LET'S MAKE A MODEL! To make this model you will need the following materials: - Air-drying clay or salt dough. - Wood board or card board. - Template. - Glue. - Green plasticine or tempera to colour the board. - Ruler. (If you use tempera you will need paint brushes, a glass of water and cloth). Your teacher will show you some websites where you can see some templates of talaiots, taula and naveta.

22 LET'S SHARE YOUR WORK! LONG VERSION (I /we) made my/our/the (model) of a (taula /naveta /talaiot) with (clay /salt dough). (I /we) made it … (on my own /with help with a classmate /in group) First (I /we) measured the template. Second (I /we) painted the (wood board /card board). After that (I /we) calculate the scale and moulded the pieces. Finally (I /we) joined the pieces and let it dry overnight. SHORT VERSION (I /we) made my/our/the (model) of a (taula /naveta/talaiot) with (clay /salt dough). (I /we) made it (on my own/with help /with a classmate /in group). First (I /we) painted the (wood board /card board). After that (I /we) moulded the pieces. Finally (I /we) joined the pieces.

23 TOOLS AND WEAPONS As you can imagine to make all this art, to hunt or for daily life, we needed some tools and weapons like clubs, spears, arrows, axes and sling stones.se club sling stone spear arrow axe

24 THE SLING STONE You can try to make a sling by following the steps in the video. Maybe you can practise how to use it in a Physical Education class.

25 LET'S SHARE YOUR WORK! LONG VERSION I made my/the (sling) with (leather /cord). I used tools like (scissors) and (hole punch). I made it (on my own / with help / with a classmate). First I (cut /punched) holes on the leather sides. Second I tied the strings to the cloth using a knot. Finally I made a loop in the longer cord end SHORT VERSION I made my/the (slingstone) with (leather /cord). I used tools like (scissors) and (hole punch). I made it (on my own /with help /with a classmate).

26 LET'S MAKE A COSTUME OF A CAVEMAN Now that you know us so well, you could make a costume to dress like us. Here you have an example made of interlining. Here you have the materials they will need: 1. Interlining/felt/wrapping-paper (2 meters each student). 2. Wax crayons (like manley): red, brown, black and ochre. 3. Scissors 4. A ruler 5. Optional: cords to decorate. Steps to follow: 1. Cut a piece of felt about 2 m length. 2. Cut a hole in the middle about 30 cm diameter. 3. Decorate it with prehistoric drawings or animal print. 4. Cut a string of felt to make a belt. 5. Cut a string of felt to make a hair band. Here you have a template. 2 m. 20 cm approx. º 60 cm approx.
