Masks have been made all around the world. Many cultures have used masks for celebrations, ceremonies, special occasions, or for fun. When have you worn a mask?
The artist, Pablo Picasso looked at masks, too. He looked at masks from many African cultures and was inspired by their use of geometric shapes.
We’re going to create a mask based on Picasso. Here are our goals:
- Mask must show a human face with eyes, nose, and mouth. It doesn’t have to be realistic.
- Mask shows inspiration from Picasso’s Blue Period, Rose Period, Cubism, OR Picasso’s original inspiration: African masks.
- Mask must be fully painted.
- Mask should be carefully papier mached, with no visible holes or cracks.
