Keeping African Masks Real
Waddington, Susan
SchoolArts: The Art Education Magazine for Teachers, v112 n3 p17-19 Nov 2012
Art is a good place to learn about our multicultural planet, and African masks are prized throughout the world as powerfully expressive artistic images. Unfortunately, multicultural education, especially for young children, can perpetuate stereotypes. Masks taken out of context lose their meaning and the term "African masks" suggests that there is only one African culture. In this article, the author describes how her third-grade students created their African masks. (Contains 2 online resources.)
