Week 5- Painting our Cubist Masks

I've gotten a bit behind on the blog again... I apologize for that.  This week we painted our cubist masks and found that they had cracked while drying in multiple places.  I actually contacted Columbus Clay, which is where we purchased the self hardening white clay.  They told me that the cracking was likely due to the thickness of the masks.  We'll still be able to salvage them... all is not lost!  Mrs. Luker and I have plans to mount them on some sort of hard board before the spring show in May.

The students did a great job of painting the masks in a cubist and abstract manner, emphasizing the different shapes in their masks.
