Today third graders learned about African masks via a power point. We discussed how we need to be sensitive when viewing artwork from other cultures. The masks we looked at had meaning for other people. They might appear strange or unusual to us. We noticed a lot of cool features. We observed the symmetry, geometric shapes, 3-D form, neutral colors, textures, and patterns. Then we began ours out of construction paper. We made sure to include symmetry , geometric shapes and neutral colors today. We worked on our masks flat. The 3-D element and other features will be added later.
