In this project, Crafts students learn how to make masks. The following is a day by day guide of what we do in the classroom.
This is the end of the first day. Students should leave with a solid idea of what they want their mask to look like. Collect and grade the design worksheets.
On day 2 and 3, students will begin to make their masks. First, we talk a bit about the Carnival of Venice and take some notes.
On day 4, students stengthen their masks by applying more plaster strips, and then smooth it by adding a layer of plaster and then sanding it. We begin by learning about Lucha Libre.
