Students in Divisions 6, 7, 8, 9, 10 and 11 had an opportunity to learn more about the
Inuit art technique called soapstone carving. The Grade 3 and 4 students learned how
to carve Canadian animals using the Inuit art technique. Soapstone carvings have been
used in Inuit culture to express Inuit stories and their way of life. Using soapstone
carvings, the Inuit peoples preserve and pass on life stories of incredible skill and resourcefulness from one generation to the next. The carved objects depict day to day
activities that the Inuit were involved in such as hunting. Tennyson students have
explored this skillful Inuit art technique and have shown appreciation for the Inuit art and
way of life. Bravo!
