Mask-making January 30, 2009

Filed under: projects — alaplante @ 6:26 am

The 7th graders are currently making masks.  Looking at many cultures around the world, they learned that masks have been used for theater, celebration, religion, war, rituals, protection, and disguise.

The students casted their masks on plastic face forms, using plaster gauze.  In the next couple weeks, they will be embellishing the masks with paint, cardboard, mosaic, metal, yarn, feather, beads, etc.
A couple photos of the students casting their masks:
