The origin of art dates back to the old stone – age when early men used their creativity to produce simple farm implements or tools like cutlasses, hoes and spears. These assisted them in their daily activities of hunting and gathering of crops for their families.

The early men started the art of painting when they documented their hunting experiences on the walls of caves. They also made use of colours from soil and plants to create designs and drawings on the walls of their caves.
