Making Masks Workshop for Kids

Cultures from around the world make masks, and in doing so, create an historical imprint on their lives. The history, purposes and varieties of masks from around the world will be explored while students engage in the fun business of making their own. Yarn, beads, oil, clay, feathers and acrylic paints are incorporated into the mask making process where creativity and individuality are incorporated into this Saturday afternoon workshop with artist and instructor Dawn Malosh.

The workshop will be held at the Centre for the Arts in Centreville, Maryland on October 22 from 1-4 p.m. Students ages 7-14 will learn artistic techniques in mask making with Malosh who is an experienced educator specializing in teaching art to young people.
