Culture Masks 7th and 8th
After looking through the internet at a wide variety of cultures' masks, students choose their favorite culture. They researched why their culture wore masks, the history, and many other facts. Students brainstormed their own mask designs using the culture they studied as inspiration. These masks took us quite awhile since clay takes up to a month to dry before it can be fired in the kiln. This is our last day to paint, add details, and last minute embellishments to our culture masks.
