GRADES 4, 5 AND 6, FOIL MASKS.
A selection of Foil Masks recently
created by Grades 4, 5 & 6 Students.

successful mask workshop last year and they wanted to do it again, so
After a brief introduction to mask use from around the world,

heavy-duty foil. I took along Styrofoam 'wig stands' for everyone to
I demonstrated how to begin, we talked about the characteristics of
foil, how it
could behave, and then they went to it.
The finished pieces were magnificent. Many of the students stretched
medium to the limits, experimenting with structure and form. They
delighted with the results - as was I!
