Art education, inspiration and encouragement for children and parents in Arlington, VA
Behind each mask is another mask that can be reversed and/or the masks can be turned upside down. Behind every mask though is it's maker. Students experimented with the watercolor techniques mentioned in the earlier post.
This week students learned how to draw so large that the shape of the mask was as large as the paper. We also had practice learning that drawing on one half of the paper and cutting it out makes another half resulting in a symmetrical design. We created our own templates and then traced around them onto our watercolor paper before cutting out the final mask shape.
Next week in class we will be using paper mache to make a bowl. This will be the first class for the bowl and it will continue into the following week...and possibly the week after. Other fun art activities will be on hand for creative learning and fun.
When is our last class?
