Art is such a wonderful and vast thing, and everybody has a different way of interpreting what art is. But what is even cooler is that ancient art was created by humans thousands of years ago. Early art, can be found dating back to the Ice Age on the walls of caves in Europe. This art preserves stories that we would not know otherwise. It has even been suggested that some of these images, when staggered on cave walls and combined with flickering torches, represent the world’s first moving pictures – 17 000 BC (Before Cameras)! On Sunday, September 29, 2019 from 1-4pm come explore this world of prehistoric art! And, while you are at it, why not express your own inner artist by making your own cave art! Don’t worry, we will supply the cave!

This event is free.
