Grade K - 3
Bring your students to the Gardiner Museum and travel around the world on our animal safari! Explore our many different galleries and view clay versions of animals from the jungle, forest, sky and sea. At the same time, learn the differences among clay, sand and soil. Each safari is followed by a hands on clay workshop with a professional ceramic artist. Students will create their own three dimensional animals and think about their habitats, their food and their young.
This program is recommended for students from Kindergarten through grade 3 but can be adapted for older students as well. For very young students in kindergarten, it is recommended that a single animal such as a turtle or a butterfly are chosen for the clay making portion of the program.
This program is available as a half-day program only.
