Creating Masks at the IMA

We LOVE visiting the IMA.   Two weeks ago, we toured the galleries to look at the African Masks.   We took time to notice the many interesting features of all of the different masks.   Today, we returned to spend some time in the star studio with our guest artist to make our own masks.   From markers, to colored sand, to natural materials… we created our own masks.   Some children focused on one material while others combined materials to create their masks.   We are excited to bring the finished, dried pieces back to our classroom next week. We’ll see what stories we can tell with our masks.
