In this hands-on workshop, kids will learn about different styles of masks and headdresses from around the world, with an emphasis on those used to celebrate carnival. They will study their own faces and sketch their designs exploring color, shape, line and texture. Using a variety of techniques – including paper mache, craft foam and clay, they will create their own mask or headdress. The kids will then decorate their projects using acrylic paint, sequins, fabric, beads and gems, feathers, and more. At the end of the week, we will have an art show and party for friends and families.
