Here's what we did. I have examples of different handouts of masks from around the world and different cultures. We look at it for ideas- but I encourage students to use their own ideas as well. First they fold a sheet of 12x18" paper in half. Draw 1/2 of the mask on the fold line (check their work because they may draw 1/2 of it on the wrong side). Encourage them to add their own designs for facial features and head dresses.
Students then cut around their mask shape and add some decorative elements to their piece with yarn, raffia, oil pastel, and patterned papers. LOVE IT!!!
