The 5th grade has learned about ceremonial and functional artwork. We’re building upon our knowledge of ceremonial African masks from last year. Students will learn a new process for creating artwork called paper mache.
Here’s the PowerPoint we’ll use for this lesson. We’ll focus on the African Mask section. Masks from Around the World
Here’s the rubric for this lesson. Our goals for this project:
- creatively use line, shape, color, & form to represent a stylized animal
