Turn the solid earth into art by drawing and painting pictures and symbols, known as pictographs, onto the surface of a rock. Native Americans painted pictographs on rocks in order to record history of events, share stories and document special aspects about their culture. Rock art can be found all over the world in caves, on cliff walls and boulders, some of which date back to thousands of years ago. Design your own one-of-a-kind rockin’ creation!
