3rd grade paper mache Greek drama mask; lesson by art teacher: Susan Joe. Masks are created with FLAT card stock paper template; then 3-4 layers of newspaper and paste are applied. When dry, students use toilet paper pulp to sculpt noses and lips. When that's dry, students apply 2 more layers of newspaper mache. Finally, students paint over the entire mask and then tape paper strips on for hair. This project took approximately seven classes from start to finish.
