Masks created by Ms. Tilton’s third grade class are on display this month in the children’s room.
“After taking a look at a variety of masks created by different cultures, students were asked to design their own mask that would be worn for a special purpose and take on a uniquely assigned facial expression.
Students then began the building phase of these masks by using one large paper plate, two small paper plates, two paper cups and miscellaneous cardboard scraps to create the face of their masks.
The next day students painted their masks using a monochromatic color scheme. Students were able to choose their main color and use black and white to create a variety of tints and shades of that color.”
~Mrs. Apker, Art Teacher
