1: Anyone within the Philly area may be interested in a symposium this
Saturday, Nov.21 called "The Birth of Art" held at the U of P Mus. of
Archaeology & Anthropology. htp://
It is cosponsered by the French Institute for Culture and Technology.
Both French and American Scholars will be speaking. Check out the site for
more info and a treat.

I plan to be there. There are still seats.

2: I want to try some of the list's ideas this winter. Turn out the lights
and flashlights for cave fire. Push all the tables away and put crumpled
brown craft paper onto the walls. In the cave firelight we will draw with
charcaol and I want to do the stenciled hands.

OK!!! Thinking Caps!!! What can I use for the kids to take a mouthfull into
the mouth and (use a straw) and spray over their hands to stencil the wall. I
have a wonderful video (Crizmac) showing the Aborig.blowing on rocks to
stencil their hands.
Surely the school nurse will have something to say about the germs...
I just really want them to have that experience of being very primative and
spitting paint onto the wall....maybe cha'colate milk.. The reality of germs
and bodily fluids will have to be factored into the plan and take the wind out
of my sails. Any creative ideas?
