Exploring pastels drawing spiral snails 

Making wax leaf rubbings and ink resist pictures

Drawing like a caveman!

In this lesson we looked at the very beginnings of drawing: cave art found in European caves dating back between 40,000 and 14,000 years ago. First, we explored many different drawing materials such as pencils, graphite, chalk, wax crayons, ball-point pens, fineliners, rubbers and charcoal and then we focussed on the physicality of drawing using charcoal. Everyone had a fun and messy time!
