"First Nations Masks" Grades 3 - 7
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,
is recommeded. If mini-masks will
do just as well, then more expensive media (like air-dry
) 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.
