    This creative unit revisits the arts of North American First Nations and Egypt, and introduces European Cave art and Roman Mosaic art.

    These step-by-step, guided art lessons use basic styles and shapes used by each culture and explores the use of colour, particular to each culture. One preferred strategy is for the teacher to demonstrate the steps with students following along creating a "rough draft". This allows students to make mistakes and practice the various techniques resulting in a better final product. Although each lesson stands on its own, it is better to teach them in order, as the techniques being explored become progressively more difficult. This Art lesson provides a teacher and student section with a variety of step-by-step student projects and evaluation to create a well-rounded lesson plan.
