Our high school students are currently making ceramic masks. The
assignment started by finding myths from another culture (the foreign
language they are studing) and discussing why myths are created, how they
are similar and different, this was a thoughtful discussion. Then they
picked one character from their myth that they would create in clay. (They
could have grouped together and made a set of masks for one story) We made
newspaper and masking tape armatures and now we are creating the
characters. Focus now is to capture a significant moment in the story on
the character's face. The masks are wonderful and we hope to have an
electronic exchange of some kind with other students.
