 EDSITEment - Lesson Plan
By studying paintings from the Cave of Lascaux and other caves in France, students discover that pictures are more than pretty colors and representations of things we recognize: they are also a way of communicating beliefs and ideas.
Of the more than 130 caves in the area, the Cave of Lascaux is the most famous -- but all the caves stand testament to the fact that that early humans had complete mastery of the artistic elements we know today: engraving, sculpture, painting, and drawing.
Today, the caves are not open to the public; they were closed in 1963 after it was determined that carbon dioxide from visitors' breath was causing the artwork to deteriorate.

But to keep the fungus in retreat, a team of restorers enters the cave every two weeks--dressed, as everyone who enters now must be, in hooded biohazard suits, booties and face masks--to remove filaments from the walls.

However, comparison of the cave art with the drawings made by a young autistic girl, Nadia, reveals surprising similarities in content and style.
