Native Americans couldn’t stop at a store to buy art supplies and there weren’t classes to teach them how to draw. Use your imagination today and step back in time to when a drawing surface was a smooth rock and tools were sturdy sticks. Michelle Lokken has a few examples of rock art to show you. Was the ancient artist trying to tell a story or to give a warning? Then, scratch out your own ideas on a specially prepared rock-like surface.
