About this project…

Masks are used all over the world:-

Artists and designers make masks for performance, for costume, for rituals and for protection.

In this project, you will design and construct your own mask based upon shapes and patterns from the animal kingdom and using ideas and styles from Central Africa.

You will develop your ability to

  • observe and record the human head
  • construct forms using a 2 dimensional medium to build your own mask sculpture
  • decorate your mask using colour and mixed media to suggest texture, pattern and identity
By the end of this project you should have a finished mask sculpture and a sketchbook showing how you researched and developed skills and ideas on this project.
