5th Grade African Inspired Masks

5th graders just finished a project inspired by African masks.  Each student created a ceramic mask based on a combination of an African animal and a human face.  The results were quite stunning.  Thomas students love working with clay, and it certainly showed with this project.  After the masks were fired, students painted them with acrylic paints, then later used a thin layer of brown tempera over the top to give their masks an aged look.
