African Masks

I have done these over and over throughout the years, different every time, but never the less impressive and loved by the kids.

These particular ones were done using prepared paper - exploring texture, paint, wax crayon.

Emphasis is on symmetry, simplicity and shape.   The final mask is shaped by snipping slits at the sides, top and/or bottom and stapling in an overlapped position. 

I even love the leftovers!
