The next class time we used our sketch and began to build a three dimensional paper mask. We discussed how to make a symmetrical shape by folding the paper and cutting on the fold. The shape of the mask was made this way. See belowIn order for the mask to be three dimensional students had to cut a V at the bottom.
Using glue they glued the V together to make the mask pop out.
Once mask was dry student began cutting shapes for the eyes, mouth, nose. There were a couple of art concepts that I looked for in each mask. Mask had to be symmetrical, not just balanced "The mirror image" Shapes had to be identical. They had to fold the paper in half and draw one shape to make multiples. Also at least one shape inside had to symmetrical. Example the noses.
