As for masks, we just finished making our face masks into greek
mythological characters, allowing them to express themselves in 20th
century forms. Interesting what characters the mixture created.
I am getting ready to teach a two week class to 3-5th graders on batik. Does
anyone have any great ideas. I have several crayon melters and am not sure if
that is the way to go.
I also need some new wonderful mask ideas. I am also teaching a mask making
class. One of the masks is going to be a plaster gauze mask on the childrens
faces. I am tired of paper mache masks. Does anyone have any different ideas
for interesting masks? I think we are going to make "beast masks" to go
along with the story Beauty and the Beast. Again, the children are 3-5th
grade. Thanks for your help. Have a great summer.
