Soapstone Carving

Grade 1, Grade 2, and Grade 4 students participated in a soapstone carving workshop with a professional artist from Studiostone Creative. Students learned how to shape the stone with files and how to polish it with different types of sandpaper. The artist then applied heat and wax to the carving to create the finished pieces. Each grade carved shapes that were connected to their learning. Grade 1 carved heart shapes for February heart month, Grade 2 carved fish shapes for their salmon unit, and Grade 4 (pictured) carved animals in connection with animals living in their biome and the importance of maintaining First Peoples culture.
