Students will develop an understanding of artists and their traditions. They will then apply their knowledge of clay and art as they create African masks and add decorative facial features. Students will compare and contrast various forms of artistic expression associated with specific groups of people and geographic regions. Students will explore texture and draped slab method of construction and try additive and subtractive sculptural techniques to create their very own African Mask.
Workshops: Students will make a mask. Masks will have holes so they can be hung as a wall hanging.
