Visual Arts and Music: Masks

As a collaboration in music and visual arts class, year 6 students are inquiring into mask making and using masks in performing arts.

Two weeks ago, students visited Mr. James, our secondary drama teacher, to learn about using masks in drama.

During music group singing, students are currently planning a short 3-5 minute performing arts presentation using drama, dance, and music while wearing their masks.

During visual arts class, students investigated masks using books and the internet, planned their masks by drawing labelled sketches, and are now creating masks using plaster. Next week, students will paint their masks and add other art materials of their choice.
