CREATING SACRED AND RITUAL MASKS WITHIN THE HIGH
SCHOOL POTTERY CLASSROOM
UNIT MEETING THE NEEDS OF A VARIETY OF LEARNERS WITH VARIOUS NEEDS AND DIFFERING
Students will research and study the culture of a chosen
mask region in the world.
Students will create a sacred or ritual mask in the style
of their chosen region, incorporating the elements and principals of design
within their creation using stoneware clay as the sculptural medium.
The masks may be historical or contemporary in nature.
Students will incorporate their own ideas reflecting individual
creativity. (i.e. not copying directly)
each student will prepare a five-ten minute visual and oral
presentation about his/her mask. This presentation will be given to the
class as a whole.
Students will display their masks in the high school
and masks will be taken to the annual Wyoming State High School art symposium
