Tutor description

Human arts might have origins in early human evolutionary prehistory. According to a recent suggestion, several forms of audio and visual arts (rhythmic singing and drumming on external objects, dancing, body and face painting) were developed very early in hominid evolution by the forces of natural selection in order to reach an altered state of consciousness. The first tangible artifacts of human art are found from the Stone Age (Upper Paleolithic, Mesolithic and Neolithic)
