The French Club made its annual visit to the Art Sanctuary Ceramics studio to fuse French cultural tradition and clay sculpture!
For the afternoon the French students turned into a Santonnier (maker of Santons). Santons, or “little saints”, are small hand-painted clay nativity scene figurines originally produced in the Provence region of southeastern France. They depict scenes from everyday village life from the scissors grinder, the fishwife, and chestnut seller.
The students were engaged and had a great time bonding while learning about French through a different media and experience.
