Creating Stone Art with Whistler Wander
Fathom Stone recently connected for an art class with Whistler Wander, a remarkable company committed to enhancing the Whistler, BC vacation experience for Spanish speakers worldwide. In our partnership, we had the pleasure of delving into not one but two creative classes: the Carved Inukshuk and the Stacked Inukshuk. These hands-on experiences allowed us to explore the world of art in one of Canada's most captivating locales.
The Perfect Rainy Day Activity
The rain and snow are a part of what makes Whistler BC so wild and beautiful, but it can be a bit overwhelmingly cold for some. Fear not, for know the perfect antidote. Soapstone carving, a unique and fulfilling activity, is your go-to choice for cold, rainy, or snowy days in Whistler. Our classes offer the opportunity to learn the art of selecting the ideal stone for your design, and then, under expert guidance, transferring that design onto the stone. The beauty of this craft lies in breaking down complex forms, such as orca whales and the iconic Whistler black bear, into manageable steps. These skills extend beyond the art studio, enriching your artistic abilities in various forms.
Art Classes for All Ages and Skill Levels
One of the highlights is the inclusivity of our art classes. Whether you're three years old or a seasoned adult, there's something for everyone. The Stacked Inukshuk classes cater to individuals aged three and above, while the Mini Sculpture class is open to those aged five and up. Parents can leave their young ones to explore their creative side independently here in the warm hallways of the Westin Resort or join them in this artistic adventure. But the artistic fun isn't limited to children. Our Small, Medium, and Large classes are designed for the entire family or groups of adults seeking an enjoyable and creative experience. For a twist, consider booking an evening class and bring along some wine to let the creative juices flow.
