My Other Half Manifested in Mask-Making
Abel, Xanthippi
Arts & Activities, v148 n2 p32-33 Oct 2010
Every fall season, each grade level of Rowland Hall St. Mark's Lower School in Salt Lake City, Utah, completes a mask-making project to be featured in a schoolwide parade. This sparked an opportunity to incorporate the fourth-grade unit of realistic and observational drawing with mask making. In this article, the author describes how her students created alter egos of themselves. Keeping the drawings for their masks realistic, they focus on shading and contouring with conte crayons, smudging, scraping and texture techniques with oil pastels, and the reflections and highlights found in the pupils of the eyes and in the hair.
