Annette Ten Cate at Theresetta Catholic School in Castor, AB

Make an Animal Using Clay

Life on Earthenware artist Annette Ten Cate travelled to Castor, AB to conduct a TREX visiting artist workshop at Theresetta Catholic School this past November 2018. Grade 3/4 and 5/6 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. Everyone had a great time!
