MASK MAKING - exploring alter-egos

June 4 - 8 Morning: MASK MAKING
Time: 10am - Noon
Ages: 5 - 14
Friday @ Noon - Parent showcase

This workshop will include drawing and mask-making. The first step is to explore different feelings, to talk about different situations in which we behave differently so as to realize that we have many different sides all bundled up within each of us. We talk about superheros, the ones depicted in movies and comic books but also ones that perhaps do not receive much attention such as the garbage man, the farmer and the teacher, to name just a few. We will go on a “treasure walk” to find different objects to include in our mask. Each participant will also have the opportunity to bring in items from home to include in their creation. After writing a little bit and exploring different feelings, imagining a different side of themselves, the artists will design their mask, first sketching out an idea of how the final result will be. This provides the opportunity to learn how to proportionally draw a human face as well as to contemplate how the structure of the mask will need to be in order to support their design. We will create a personalized mask for each person using the plaster strips, later wrapping them in paper mache once they have fully dried. Each participant will elaborate their mask in the way they see fit with help from the teacher.


The purpose of these workshops is not only to create a finished piece of art, but to enjoy the process of creation as well as to explore different personal emotions and feelings that we experience in reaction to the world around us.

With a focus on reusable and recycled materials, there is an emphasis on the fact that art is everywhere and for everyone. By highlighting the beauty in common items and pointing out different uses for what many would call trash we open up a world not only of imagination but conservation, also.

Ideally, there will be a final showing of the projects made so that the participants can experience the fulfillment of the entire creative process: imagination, creation and exhibition. A small reception can be planned so that on the last day of the workshop we invite the parents to come a little early and see all of the art that was made during the week or month.


Your Artist Instructor: Celia Rose

just one of her names, but she smells the same

she feels that nothing is new, there are only differing perspectives that continue to develop along with the movement that was set into place long ago

she finds that expressing herself through dance or paint is as natural as breathing and dreaming, and just as necessary

this artist, forged in the red dirt of Oklahoma and seasoned in the hills of Tennessee, currently lives with and learns from the spirits in Mexico

her creations are the result of what she learns from precious ancient tales and the treasures she finds abandoned in alleyways

nothing is without meaning, you must simply feel for it
