Masks in 5th Grade Art

The BIG mask-making project will be starting in the art room!!!!
Your son/daughter will choose a partner.  They are told to choose somebody they trust because their partner will be the one placing the plaster bandages on their face.  Some students express a concern about this and I inform them that if they want a parent or an adult to be present the day their mask will be made, you are welcome to join us in the art room.  Please check in at the front desk and head back to the art room (suggested to wear clothes you don’t mind getting dirty).

Your son/daughter will discuss with their partner what group they will be in.
Suggested materials to bring but not mandatory for mask making:
old towels, face wash, lotion, old shirts, pony tails, bandanas, head bands.

The Maxey art room will provide all materials to decorate the mask but if your son/daughter would like to bring extra materials from home to make their mask more unique – they are welcome to.  If you would like to send extra craft items that you have at home for other students to use in addition to the items your son/daughter will use for their mask – it would be very kind and helpful.  Generosity like this is greatly appreciated by many of the students and myself:)  Please handle the following as you see fit!  The following list includes materials appropriate for the students’ mask unit:

costume jewelry
*low temp. glue sticks (small round size)
seeds, acorns
ribbons, yarn
puff paint/fabric paint
silk flowers/greenery
scrapbooking paper
foam decorations
