Alberta Rose and Pine

Grade(s): Kindergarten, 1, 2, and 3

Location: Visual Art Studios at St. Albert Place (Art Gallery of St. Albert)

Program Delivery: Virtual and In School

The Province of Alberta has a particular outline that students will recognize and re-create with a clay slab. The official flower and tree, the Wild Rose and the Lodge Pole Pine are a creative addition to this unique clay piece celebrating Alberta! 

*Note: All in school and virtual clay programs use air dry clay which is much less durable than clay that is bisque fired at our visual art studios. We cannot transport clay from in-school programs to the visual art studios for firing, but if your school has a kiln and a technician, we can supply suitable clay for firing at your school.
