As for masks: One year I had the students take their pariscraft masks and turn
them into landscapes. The noses make great "mountains", the eyes, "lakes", and
they built additional things like trains, trees, houses out of pariscraft and
added them to the horizontal faces. They were then painted. It took viewers
awhile to get the face part, they enjoyed the landscapes first...and it turned out
to be a pleasant surprise...
