The term "Stone Age Art" refers loosely to any works created during these three periods
  9. 9. Petroglyphs derived from the Greek word "petra" meaning stone, and "glyphein" meaning to carve used to describe any image created on a rock surface by scouring, scratching, engraving, chiseling, carving or any similar method Example: cupules, rock carvings and engravings

  12. 12.  Megalithic Art Petroforms or any other works associated with arrangements of stones Megalithic art embraces any artistic activity involving the use of large stones, notably carving, relief sculpture and of course megalithic architecture. Megolithic Art include monuments that were mostly burial chambers, portal tombs (dolmens), passage tombs (Newgrange) and gallery graves (Zuschen stone cist, Hesse), Megalithic structures also included "alignments" (arrangements) of single upright stones, called menhirs (Carnac, Brittany) and stone circles (Stonehenge, UK) and sanctuaries (Gobekli Tepe, Turkey).
  13. 13. Paleolithic Era (c.2,500,000 - 10,000 BCE)  Characterized by a Stone Age subsistence culture and the evolution of the human species from primitive australopiths via Homo erectus and Homo sapiens to anatomically modern humans. Mesolithic Era (From 10,000 BCE)  This era joins the Ice Age culture of the Upper Paleolithic with the ice-free, farming culture of the Neolithic. It is characterized by more advanced hunter-gathering, fishing and rudimentary forms of cultivation. Neolithic Era (From 8,000-4,000 BCE to 2000 BCE)  This era is characterized by farming, domestication of animals, settled communities and the emergence of important ancient civilizations (eg. Sumerian, Egyptian). Portable art and monumental architecture dominate.
  14. 14.  Read on notable works of art during the Ancient Time, the Venus Figures, Cave Paintings, and notable structures, try to get the reason why they were made.  Research on a Philippine counterpart of Ancient Art, indicate its exact location, possible date of creation and type of ancient art  Bring the following: 1 Tablespoon of Dry Soil 1 Large stone (fist-size)
  15. 15. Materials: One smooth stone One rough rock a) Select a caveman inspired animal presented in a caveman painting (Lascaux or Chavet) and sketch on the rock using a ballpen or pencil on the smooth rock. b) Using the rough rock etch the design on the smooth stone to create the petroglyphs.
  16. 16. 5 4 3 2 1 Score Close Resemblance of to the Source Material. Exceptional work and closest to the source material Proficient work and close to the source material Approaching Proficiency in capturing the source material Basic work with recognizable elements somewhat close to the source material Basic work but fails to look lie the source material Efficient Use of Technique with the Material (Workmanship) Shows workmanship comparable to the Art Period Shows workmanship close to the Art Period Shows workmanship that is identifiable to the Art Period Shows workmanship that has little resemblance to the Art Period Workmanship shows no resemblance from the Art Period Creativity Shows a work that has an advance blending of the limited materials into a cohesive work Shows a work that has a proficient blending of the limited materials into a cohesive work Shows a work that is able to blend the limited materials into a reasonable cohesive work Shows a work that is able to blend the limited materials but work is not cohesive Shows a work that is not able to blend the materials into a cohesive work.
