Winter Workshop I. “What Stories the Walls Tell: Cave Art and its Makers” Taught by Bertha Rogers
February 17 @ 9:00 am - February 21 @ 2:30 pm
Grades 1 – 7, Ages 6 – 14, 9 am – 2;30 pm, 5 days
Students will take a virtual journey to Indonesia, where 44,000-year-old cave drawings that tell a story were found; the drawings feature a hunting scene with jungle buffaloes and wild boars stalked by part-human and part-animal hunters carrying spears and ropes. We will learn about these and other cave art during the week, then build our own papier-mâché caves with drawings and/or make animal masks and write our own legends, riddles, and poems about them.
The cost is $120, which includes morning & afternoon snacks (students bring their own lunch). Registration is limited to 22 students. (Delaware Academy students, full scholarships; full and partial scholarships for Delaware and Otsego County students).
