This class teaches students how to create a decorative mask by using paper mache around a plastic form, using recycled materials like newsprint and paper lunch bags and common kitchen supplies like flour, salt, and water as glue. We will rethink the use of recycled products by creating new images and artwork from our discard materials.
Each student will be able to take home the paper mache mask they have made and painted.
Students will learn a new media of art (paper mache).
Students will be able to use simple products to create new forms using recycled products to generate new ideas and visions.

Why I teach:
“I like being a facilitator of art to help inspire the students. I give them the directions, the materials, and the motivation. Then I can watch the students create art through their own thoughts and vision.” -Larry Meyers
