Program Description Students will create masks to express a range of emotions as well as creating their own myth and story behind the mask using clay. After the firing they can add color/decorations.Using many ceramic techniques, we will create a range of faces/expressions that will relate various aspects of the student reality today or use the past visual history to express something about an aspect of your life or your own personal emotions. Masks have been worn from Ancient times to modern day. Primitive tribes wore mask as part of their ritual, festival, ceremonies and dances. The mask was thought to give super natural powers to wearers,ie. Nigerian, Pre-Columbian, Japanese/ Kabuki, Native American.
