Annette Ten Cate at Jenny Emery School

Make an Animal Using Clay

Life on Earthenware artist Annette Ten Cate travelled to Coaldale, AB to conduct a TREX visiting artist workshop at Jennie Emery Elementary School this past October 2018. Grade three classes engaged with the artist in creating their own three dimensional animal using air dry clay. Each student had the opportunity to build an animal using a clay technique called pinch pot and paddle. For this project students brought visuals to assist in the building of the work, these images helped with developing observation skills, and were useful when adding details to the shape and features. They worked so hard and the results were amazing!
