Students will learn to look at the world with a ‘primitive eye,’ assessing what life-giving materials are available in their immediate surroundings
Stone Age humans relied upon natural technologies to secure all of life’s necessities. Their skills and tools were not only adequate for a thriving life, they were so effective that ancient peoples had ample time to create art, stories, and the cultures which came to define our species. In this class we will be calling upon the spirit of our Stone Age ancestors. Students will learn to look at the world with a ‘primitive eye,’ assessing what life-giving materials are available in their immediate surroundings. We will share stories and play games as ancient humans once did. As a capstone craft, everyone will have the chance to create a stone bead using only natural materials and Stone Age grit. This ‘primitive bling’ will be theirs to take home and show off to the modern world. If your ready to dive into the consciousness of a caveman (or woman), than join us for this wild outing!
