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.
