Soapstone Carving Workshop
Students in grades 3 to 7 participated in a soapstone carving workshop on November 27. Each student selected their own local BC animal to carve, sand, and polish.
Everyone worked hard to craft a unique piece of art. This workshop connected to both science and social studies for most students. In science, the grade 3s and 4s have been investigating the diversity of animals. This style of art is also popular amongst Indigenous peoples and students got to experience the time and effort it takes to sculpt a small figurine.
