Art Gallery Field Trip

 We recently took a field trip to the Surrey Art Gallery where students took part in a mask-making workshop.  Our fantastic instructor, April, explained the basics of hand building with clay, then guided students as they worked through the first few steps of creating their masks.  Once everyone had prepared their clay, it was time for the creativity to flow as students created animals, people, superheroes and even the ocean!  As you can see in the photos, the masks turned out wonderfully.  I was very proud too when April commented several times on what a respectful, attentive, hardworking class I had!

The masks are now in our classroom drying out.  They will then be fired in our kiln and painted.  I'm sure the final products will be amazing!

A special thanks to all our volunteer drivers who took time out of their schedules to accompany us.  As always, this trip would not have been possible without you!
