Primary Art and the Stone Age

    Does anyone have an any ideas for an artist focus that could be (very loosely) linked to the Stone Age.

    I was thinking Andy Goldsworthy would be a good link as he uses natural materials etc.

    Any ideas are welcome. We are changing from Pop Art and Andy Warhol to a new artist.

    I used Aboriginal Art as a stimulus.

    I like the idea of using natural materials, using fingers/ toes or natural stones to make pictures. I remember doing something on sand painting a few years back as part of a topic on natural patterns. If I can find the name or my resources I'll let you know.

    The name was something like Amador and he painted 'Earthscape Art' with a sweeping brush. We actually did some on the beach too! ;)

    Thank you! I was thinking of colour mixing with natural materials. Grinding up etc. I did Andy Goldsworthy has done a couple things with rain shadows, which would link nicely with cave drawings too.

    Love this community x

    Found the LTP and MTP :) and just checking through I've left no persona details and when I've finished doing that will post this and the accompanying Ppt. in resources later.

    Finished and uploading now.
    It's entitled 'DT.Art project Patterns in Nature', so hopefully it should be available in a while. Sometimes it doesn't show up for a couple of hours. It's under Free resources by the way. ;)

    Have you found it and might it be of any use? The work you've previously done about Warhol would be quite a good bridge for that unit

    I did search for my Aboriginal resources, but realised many of those were adapted from a colleague's work. Basically what I did was look at the idea of 'Journeys' and 'Dreamtime' and linking with Geog. we planned a piece of Art based on our 'Daily journey' using made up symbols. We studied map symbols as a a starter. Was really pleased with that project, but you'd have to fine the pictures yourself, but fairly easy to do if you input Aboriginal journeys/ symbols and Dreamtime. would link quite well with a Stone Age topic.

    I saw a project once where the pupils painted straight on to large, smooth pebbles collected from the beach.
