Title: The Bat Swarm

Materials and techniques: Canvas and acrylic paint.

Did you enjoy this project? We enjoyed the research that we did for this project. We also enjoyed putting together all of our thoughts about this project until we came up with one design. We love the bats that are painted on our canvas

About: We wanted to show how the guides of Mammoth Cave enter the darkness with only a flashlight and how that light can make the animals that live in the cave move as they explore the darkness.

Title: The River of Mammoth Cave

Materials and techniques: Canvas and acrylic paint.

Did you enjoy this project? My group had a blast creating this work of art. We all worked together and brought ideas together to express our ideas of Mammoth Cave.

About: Our artwork is about the tour guides that have lad the expeditions throughout the cave for over 200 years. Mammoth Cave National Park has been an attraction throughout the world. Without the courage of the first tour guides and the leadership of today’s tour guides, the wonders of the 400 mile long cave system wouldn’t be experienced by the world. We are grateful for the contribution that every one of the guides have made.
