Maskmaking at The Lighthouse

I teach art classes for visually impaired teens at the Lighthouse International (see previous post for our robot pinata project). We recently made papier mache masks in my class. After completion, the students used their masks for theater exercises in their Drama class (I sat in on one Drama class and was quite surprised by the abandon with which the students took on the characters of their masks). Some of our students are blind, but most of them have some degree of sight.

I am extremely impressed with the results of this project and very proud of these talented artists. Here are some highlights. Enjoy!
