Description:What are some different purposes for masks? Have you ever worn a mask? If so, where and what for?

The students learned that there are many different reasons to wear masks. In Native American cultures, many individuals wore/wear masks for performances and celebration. The students' artwork was inspired by Native American bird masks. They focused on creating a symmetrical design with mostly natural colors. They embellished their masks with feathers and/or raffia. Some students added string in order to wear their mask, while others chose to use their masks as wall decorations.
