Bringing creative clay experience into Squamish schools and the community
“I love to create, and to me, the ultimate freedom of expression is a blank canvas or a block of clay to capture whatever emotions your imagination gives it.”
Claytivity aims to enrich art programs in schools and the community by providing instruction in the art of hand-building with clay.
Every student is an artist
In CLAYTIVITY Classes, every student is an artist. Making a project with clay is a rich and rewarding experience that allows every student to create a unique project using the power of their own imagination. In two or three simple steps, CLAYTIVITY instructors will guide students through the whole process.
Choose a project
There are many project ideas to choose from or ask about a custom project related to a particular theme.
Learn modelling skills and techniques
CLAYTIVITY instructors teach skills and techniques of modelling through building projects out of clay.
Easy to follow step by step instructions
The instructor will demonstrate and give clear instructions for two or three easy to follow steps for building the project.
After each step the students will be given a piece of clay to work with. Students will learn how to shape, mold and mark the clay to make the individual components of their project and how to join the components securely together to make a complete project within a one to two hour class.
