Sculpture "First Nations Masks" Grades 3 - 7

The First Nations Beaver Mask is just one of the options students can choose. (These masks are not meant to be worn - only for hanging!)

A variety of sculpture mediums can be used. If full-sized masks are needed, potter's clay is recommeded. If mini-masks will do just as well, then more expensive media (like air-dry clay) can be used. Air-dry clay will remain somewhat fragile once dry.

Potter's Clay can be fired. Firing requires the use of a kiln. Many schools without kilns make arrangements with their local highschool art teacher to have their projects fired! Please be aware that firing clay will take at least a week and a half of time, usually longer due to kiln scheduling.  Bisque-fired masks (first firing) can be left as is or painted with tempera or acrylic paints.
