So these winter months and this yucky winter weather has been such a drag! I wanted some excitement in the art room and my 6th graders are currently working on clay masks. They had to research a particular culture,festival, or event that has incorporated masks and story telling throughout time and throughout cultures. After they chose they had to write 5 facts about the particular culture they researched. Afterwards, they had to choose two different cultures and combine them into a mask design of their choice. So far they are fabulous and the students are very engaged. I can't wait to show you and to see the final results! What clay projects are you working on with your students?
