"ART OF THE ROCK," by Geri Schrab and Cindi Stiles,
Wisconsin Adademy of Review Quarterly, Fall 2001.
Eight page article by artist Geri Schrab and Archaeologist
each presenting their unique perspective on this fascinating and intangible
subject matter. The writing and artwork are focused on the petroglyphs of Wisconsin. Please click here to view the article.
This coloring book features coloring pages from 14 different publicly accessible sites across North America
that I have visited. For each site there are two coloring pages, one page where the images are large and easy
to color for little ones, plus identifying the location of that public site and certain offerings of that park,
such as camping, terrain, picnic areas, hiking, etc.
The second page of each site is the "rock art" in context; ie., drawn within the natural setting to help bring
children into a connection with the natural environment of the petroglyphs; not just disconnected images on a blank page.
These "in situ" coloring pages are more complex, appropriate for approximately 9 years old and up.
The coloring book also has a list of publicly accessible sites from across North America to facilitate
family exploration, plus some tips on petroglyph site etiquette. One of my goals is to encourage, in some small way,
a reconnection of youngsters, through the rock art, with the land. It is a connection that is being lost,
via the electronic age, the internet and instant everything. What a wonderful stop on your next "road trip."
Visit a petroglyph site, spend some time outdoors and learn from the ancient ones.
