Rock Art

May 23, 2015

11:00 AM to 4:00 PM

Family Discovery Gallery

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.

Family Programs are offered on Saturdays in the Family Discovery Gallery on a drop-in basis from 11:00 am to 4:00 pm. The programs are geared for children ages 5-12. Children must be accompanied by an adult. No pre-registration is required. Programs are free with admission to the Paine (free for Paine Members and Big Brothers Big Sisters participants).
