Subject: [ArtsEducators] Great Site for Middle School - and Mask Site

> Dear Art Educators,
> Mark Alexander posted Mask Makers Web to the World list:

> There is a section on Egyptian art
> with a lesson on how to
> tempera batik (one section shows all different Egyptian Crowns - I know
> of you like to do Egyptian style self portraits)....another section,
> masks gives a nice
> overview of styles and reasons for masks of Africa - shows a few examples
> (graphics not photos- but still good enough for kids to get the idea) --
> there is a short quiz. The hands on project is a positive/negative space

> the third section is on drawing pencil portraits

Again, another great suggestion for sites. May I add this one to the list: ?
