Art, was the oldest form of communication, even before the Homo Sapiens, 60,000 years ago, our ancestors engraved  and colored ostrich eggs in South Africa. 30,000 years ago painted rocks and caves around the world and carved amazing sculptures in stone and ivory.

This is our first presentation and we will learn how our ancestors left their first etchings and carvings, and how this wonderful and amazing creations are linking their world to ours. After thousands of years, their art is still fresh and harmonious, it stills tells as how they lived, what they saw, what they liked.

Lets take a look at our past and after exploring their techniques, we will be able to create as they did, using stones, pigments, sticks and minerals.
