Electives-Mask Making

Mask Making from Joy Paton on Vimeo.

This video is about Mask Making

During the first six weeks of this term, we have electives in which the students can choose which programme to go to. Miss Paton runs a mask making workshop in which there are sixteen boys and one girl that attend it from the five senior classes. We are currently making plaster bandage masks. Each student has to sit very still while vasceline and wet plaster bandages get applied to their faces. The students have to sit still for fifteen minutes while their masks dry on their faces. During the last five minutes a hair dryer blows warm air onto the mask which assists with the drying process. It has been a fun activity. We aim to make five masks each week until everyone has a mask.

These look awesome. I can't wait to see how you paint them up. I'm so impressed that you can sit that long to wait for the masks to dry.

You guys are amazing. Can't wait to see the finished product. Should see some great artwork and designs. Very cool.

Mr Johnston said...

So Cool! What fun and such a good take on the mask making concept. Look forward to seeing the end result and hearing what the children thought of the activity, especially the plastering experience.

Looking great everyone. Can't wait to see them when you have finished.
