Paper Mache Mask Making
This class will meet for three consecutive sessions beginning Tuesday, September 6 in the Arts & Crafts area. There will be 15 minutes of talk followed by 45 minutes of coaching and parallel play prior to Show & Share – then free play after that. The first session will build a custom mold for each participant’s face. The second will build a mask. The third will decorate and paint the mask. There are three classes to allow materials to dry between sessions. It is highly recommended that participants visit https://www.ultimatepapermache.com/ to get a head start on concepts and also Google “paper mache art” for inspiration. (We will have a later class on using moldable plastic to make tusks and fangs.)
