In class two day workshop at Avondale Alternative P.S – December 2010
The students in the grade 4/5 class used the play ” A midsummer nights dream” as a template to create their own personal plaster mask.
- Day One- The students paired up with one partner and each took a turn to place plaster strips on each others faces.
- Day Two- After a 24 hour drying period, the students were asked to illustrate the design of the mask they would like to make. Once completed , paint was distributed at the tables and dried off with a hair dryer for the final stage.
- Day Two- The final stage for the project included a variety of craft materials that were available to the students in a self serve setting. The students used the materials and The Art Garage Inc. staff hot gluded the pieces onto the mask as directed by the students. Awesome.
