​Inuit Soapstone Carving
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!
