1st Grade Mask Making

This year, our elementary school immersed itself in the studies of Africa and its many countries. First grade learned about the art of mask making and its uses to tell stories, celebrate events in people's lives or to
re-enact history.  Students used a template to get the basic shape of their mask, and used Gel Fx markers to add designs that helped explain their own masks.
