Hannah Petkau at St. Patrick Fine Arts Elementary

Overview

Hanna Petkau begins her creative process by spending time outdoors collecting.  Similar to how Hannah draws inspiration from her interactions with these found objects, students spent time collection found objects prior to the workshop in anticipation of re-constructing and transformed them. During the workshop,  they then altered the objects through techniques such as braiding, weaving and painting and then re-assemble them into new objects.

Objectives

Students will:

  • use recycled/found materials in new creative ways
  • Create a unique sculptural object while making decisions about colour, texture and learn the process of editing.
